James City County is pleased to announce its inaugural summer concert series. Come and enjoy live music at Jamestown Beach Event Park on the Fourth Fridays of June, July and August. Each concert will feature a different musical act. Concerts will be held on June 24, July 22 and August 26 with music from 6-7:30 p.m.
The first concert on June 24 will be a double header with Rayvon Owen and Joey Cook with her band, the Partyraddlers. Both Owen and Cook were contestants in the 14th season of American Idol. Each reached the top 7 and are both natives of Virginia.
The second concert on July 22 will feature Harley Boone. Harley Boone merges country, bluegrass and rock elements into a sharp contemporary sound and are from the Richmond area.

Doors will open for each Fourth Friday at 5 p.m. Concerts will take place on a grassy field within Jamestown Beach Event Park. Admission to Fourth Fridays is $20 (cash or check) per car at the gate. Parking for the concert will be behind the old Jamestown Campground building at 2205 Jamestown Beach Event Park adjacent to Jamestown Settlement.
Pack a picnic and a blanket and come enjoy a fun Friday evening. All picnics are subject to inspection prior to entrance. No alcohol may be brought with you to the event.
