The LAST October Old Beach Art Market is TOMORROW!

Shannon Calley/Calley Coastal Jewelry and Art, Carla Fuller/Gypsy Soul Boutique, Marisa Kuntz/The Bohemery, Ashley Smith and Teresa Hartman/YardArt will be waiting to see you in the morning. Please stop by and say hello.

After visiting the Old Beach Markets, wander down to the 17th Street Marketplace. See OBAM favorites like Shannon Calley and Carla Fuller after OBAM closes.

Another fun stop would be The VB Flea – behind Three Ships Coffee on 19th Street just east of the Old Beach Markets.

Lots of good reasons to come to Old Beach tomorrow.

And next week –
19th Street will have a different look on Saturday, October 28th. The Anthem Wicked 10K begins at 8:00 a.m. going east on 19th. A costume contest is part of this event so it’s usually good for some laughs.

No OBAM – no EBLAST so our next note will be on November 17th. Until then….

ARTS MAKE A MAJOR ECONOMIC IMPACT IN VIRGINIA BEACH

Did you know that last year, the arts generated $87.7 million in Virginia Beach alone?

This spending supported 2,875 jobs, generated $52.5 million in income to local residents and returned about $7 million to local and state governments in the form of tax revenues.

This data was recently shared in the Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 study conducted by Americans for the Arts and supported by The Ruth Lilly Fund of Americans for the Arts.

The Art of Burning Man at The Hermitage Museum and Gardens closes tomorrow night. Tickets are require. $50 until 8:00 p.m. today. $75 at the gate.
Here’s the thing about Burning Man – it really burns.
Be there to see it happen.

There is something for everyone!

There is something for everyone at the Virginia Beach Art Market.

Did you see the lovely article by Lorraine  Eaton  in the Wednesday Virginian Pilot on Old Beach Farmer’s Market? We got a mention along with Old Beach Green Market even if  it wasn’t by name:

This bustling Oceanfront market is more of a marketplace. Each Saturday, a portion of 19th Street is cordoned off and mostly nonfood  vendors sell everything from handmade soaps to etched glassware to photographs. This past Saturday, there was even a knife sharpener and a boutique clothing truck.
Put this on your calendar, too. The Hermitage Museum and Gardens and their spectacular The Art of Burning Man Exhibition. Everything’s aglow on Thursday nights until October 12.
