Norfolk's Indie Music and Arts Fest

I've attended this the previous 2 years and enjoyed getting to know new musicians both local and from elsewhere. It hasn't been crowded either and great weather! ETC is the celebration of the vast talent and dedication that fuels the independent music scene. Town Point Park transforms into an organic platform for artists, comedians, authors, and musicians to flourish. Embrace The Culture (ETC) is comprised of local, regional and national artists on multiple stages along the Elizabeth River while offering local culinary, visual and salvage artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell their own talents. ETC is free and everyone is welcome. ETC festival-goers will enjoy the melodic music of the performers, the bustling brilliance of Buskers sprinkled throughout the park, the fabulous flavors from the Food Truck food court, the interesting ideologies of Independent Authors, ETC, ETC.

    Looking forward to this event! It is an all day festival beginning at noon. If anyone has specific times they plan to be there, can you please post? I will be there at noon until about 3-4 because I have a friend's 30th birthday party. I'm excited to hear some great music! Hope there will be some early folks to enjoy it with :)

    I and another member are going at 7. I think other groups are going, dr. Bree may have info on that. If those going later in the day want to meet up, email me and I will give you my number. We can also do food if those who will be there at that time want. For those not dog friendly my dog, a loveable lab will be with me, just a heads up.

    since it is an all day thing, does anyone want to specifically set up a time to go, maybe get a few of us involved, maybe even do a potluck if it is around dinner that we settle on. hope to hear from a few of you.

    September 4

    • Michelle

      I think the potluck is a great idea. I like to have some healthy food options. I may actually go at noon. They're going to have a silent disco as well as all that great music! So fun!
