JYF’s Picnic on the Pier [Jamestown, VA]

Chris & Robby at Jamestown

Shake out your picnic blankets and get primed for a blend of blues, barbecue and stunning sunset views at this year’s Picnic on the Pier at Jamestown Settlement.

On September 22 from 6 to 8 p.m., The Bobby BlackHat Band is sure to have toes tapping, fingers popping and hips shaking along the James River waterfront. As Virginia’s Blues Ambassador, Bobby BlackHat is an award-winning recording artist who blends the influences of Chicago, Memphis, Piedmont and Delta-style blues with a little gospel for an experience that’s unforgettable. Armed with a harmonica and vocal prowess, BlackHat has opened for music legends, including B.B. King, Taj Mahal, Delbert McClinton and Patti LaBelle. He’s also a retired U.S. Coast Guard Commander, serving as a presidential military aide and a recipient of the Coast Guard Medal for Heroism.

Picnickers can savor delicious barbecue and beverages from Williamsburg favorites, Old City BBQ and The Virginia Beer Company. A limited number of picnic tables will be set up along the area that overlooks the James River and pier, along with space available for those who want to bring their blankets or chairs for seating.
