About Ynot Wednesdays
Ynot Italian’s Ynot Wednesdays sponsored by Southern Auto Group returns for its fourteenth season! The outdoor summer concert series takes place on the Sandler Center Outdoor Plaza June 1 – August 31, every Wednesday from 5pm – 9pm.
Over fourteen weeks, visitors will 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 will be able to purchase food, water, and soft drinks from title sponsor Ynot Italian, who will be serving up delicious pizza, sandwiches, and gelato all season long. Wine, beer, and cocktails will also be available to purchase, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Sandler Center Foundation (sandlercenterfoundation.org).
Guests will 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.
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 will also be 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. For more information, to purchase a VIP or café table, or to become a vendor or sponsor, please visit sandlercenter.org/ynot.
