Short Pump Town Center’s FREE Summer Concert Series returns this Thursday, August 5th.
After a COVID-caused hiatus, the 17th Annual Short Pump Town Center FREE Summer Concert Series returns this Thursday, August 5th. Three Sheets to the Wind, America’s #1 Tribute to Yacht Rock, will kick off the three-part decade themed series with 70s soft rock hits in their signature, nautical style.
The events begin at 5:00 PM in Main Plaza near the entrance to Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn . Wine tastings provided by Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant will be available from 5:00 – 8:00 PM near the Main Plaza, the proceeds from which will benefit Henrico CASA. Henrico CASA believes every child deserves a safe home where they can thrive. They stand up for the best interests of vulnerable children in Henrico County who are wrapped up in court cases that allege abuse or neglect as their voice in court, ensuring they have a safe home. Funds raised from the wine tastings will provide resources needed to support four additional families over the upcoming year.
103.7 will be on-site with Jackson Scott of “Mornings with Jackson” as emcee.
We’re so excited to bring back the FREE Summer Concert Series! It’s been such a tough year, we look forward to spreading a little joy and having some 70s,80s, and 90s-themed fun!
Don’t miss out on the fun — no ticket required!

Dec. 11: Michelle Devereaux Livigne of Driveway Drag Show performed a drive-thru show at the McDonald’s at 9751 W. Broad St. All money raised went to the Ronald McDonald Charities of Richmond.
Photographer’s note: After a year of photographing gun rallies, coronavirus testing and protests, this event was fun to document. The people going through the drive-thru line seemed to get a kick out of the performers dancing to Christmas music in the parking lot. Nikon D850, 24-70 mm lens.
