Explore the 757: Free Summer Concerts in Ocean View

Posted on Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 at 4:57pm.

If you’re new to Norfolk, or to the Ocean View area, and you’re looking for something to do this summer, free concerts on the Chesapeake Bay will soon start.

Ocean View Beach Park is located at the end of Granby Street at Ocean View Avenue in Norfolk. The 6.5-acre beach park is considered the jewel of Ocean View. It has a large band shell for presentations and dancing, a beach with lifeguards in the summer, a boardwalk, beach handicap access ramp, and lots of open green spaces. Parking is available on-site and across the street. And when the concerts are over, there are some nearby restaurants to check out.

Between June 30-August 25, families can enjoy live performances from local and regional bands every Friday night, at the TGOV Beach Music Concert Series (Thank Goodness It's Ocean View!). The TGOV Beach Music Concert Series is a great way to start the weekend with live music on the Chesapeake Bay, children's activities, corn hole games, food, beverages, and more! Be sure to bring a blanket or your lawn chairs, and get a good spot to watch a concert.
