Friday Cheers, now in its 36th year, is Richmond’s longest running and largest outdoor music series. This eight-week music series takes place in May and June each year and continuously features some of the best national and regional bands. Year after year, Friday Cheers has drawn thousands of spectators to Brown’s Island, one of the gems of Richmond’s riverfront.
So what makes Friday Cheers so special?
First of all, after surviving a long winter, making it through cold and flu season, and being teased by a couple of false starts to spring, by May, we’re all itching to get outside. With a start date of May 1, Friday Cheers kicks off the Richmond outdoor concert season – and it’s just what the doctor ordered.
Secondly, with affordably priced tickets and season pass options, it’s a great value through and through. It offers the best music, at the best venue, and for the best price without a doubt.
But arguably, our favorite part of this outdoor series is how it combines the best of Richmond. It brings together both the uniquely beautiful outdoor elements of our city, offering picturesque vies of the city skyline and the James River; but it also portrays Richmond’s thriving and vibrant arts scene. With an always eclectic line-up, Friday Cheers provides Richmonders with the chance to hear some of their local favorites, as well as discover new favorites from all over the country.
All in all, Friday Cheers offers the perfect way to unwind after a long week of work. Thanks to the beautiful and spacious outdoor setting, families are welcome – in fact, children under 12 are free. Plus, there are always beer trucks, food vendors, and plenty of family-friendly refreshments on hand to keep everyone happy all evening long.
With a new line-up just released, we want to make sure you don’t miss a moment of the Friday night fun.
So without further ado, here’s what (or rather who!) you can expect to see this year at Friday Cheers…
