In 2019, Friday Cheers celebrates its 35th anniversary. As the longest running and largest event of its kind in Richmond, Friday Cheers showcases some of the nation’s hottest touring bands and all-time regional favorites. The only summer concert series held along the James River, Cheers draws 3,000-6,000 people per week to Richmond’s picturesque Brown’s Island, a park-like setting situated between the Canal Walk and the scenic James River in downtown Richmond, Virginia. Friday Cheers takes place every Friday in May and June.
Friday Cheers has hosted groups such as the Zac Brown Band, Alabama Shakes, Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Head & the Heart and hundreds of others great bands. With tickets only costing $5 and $10 for shows or $45-$55 for a season pass, it is the best deal in town for a concert. Children 12 and under are free.
