The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts has presented Ynot Italian’s Ynot Wednesdays sponsored by Southern Auto Group for fourteen seasons! The outdoor summer concert series typically takes place on the Sandler Center Outdoor Plaza every Wednesday, June - August from 5pm - 9pm.
Visitors enjoy a musical panorama of live, local bands showcasing a diversity of genres from pop, country, big brass, Motown, rock, jazz, and more. Alongside free music, guests are able to purchase food, water, and soft drinks from title sponsor Ynot Italian, who serve up delicious pizza, sandwiches, and gelato all season long. Beer, wine, and hard seltzers are also available for purchase.
Guests have the opportunity to interact with our many sponsors and vendors, including Sinclair Communications, Southern Auto Group, 360 IT, White Claw, APEX, and many more. They will also be treated to a variety of additional activities on select weeks - past events have included a farmer’s market, the eco-friendly Ynot WINDSday, and a “last day of summer” field day event, The Ynot Pizza-lympics! Be sure to check back for more information on upcoming events as they are added!
Feeling the summer heat? Visitors may venture inside the Sandler Center to cool off, take a free educational tour of the building, visit the restrooms and bars, or take a gallery stroll through the public art displayed on the second and third-floor lobbies. The Kids’ Craft Corner in the Miller Studio is also open for families to enjoy make-and-take art projects and activities.
The Ynot Wednesday concert series has become a summer favorite of Hampton Roads residents and visitors.
