2nd Sundays Art & Music Festival




Upcoming LoveLight Placemaking Popup Maker’s Markets

Often called the Artists & Musician’s Mom- our 2nd Sundays & LoveLight Placemaking Founder & Director, Shirley Vermillion, has been looking for opportunities to fill in “holes” in Williamsburg’s creative community and highlight the area’s talent since 2007(First Colony (her neighborhood) Art Bazaar was where the artist & artisan organizing began, which led to the beginning of 2nd Sundays in 2010).

To add a little more local handmade shopping during the Holiday season in 2021 and to give Grand Illumination Tourists, and families getting photos with Santa more to do in downtown Williamsburg while they awaited nighttime activities, she added some Pop Up Maker’s Markets on Prince George Street  on the Saturdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas before Valentine’s Day 2022! 

When the City of Williamsburg decided to revoke the permit for them on Prince George Street in Sept of 2022- Vermillion followed her LoveLight Placemaking mission of spreading Arts, Music and Creativity all around, building CommUNITY, partnering with event spaces with residents and businesses that fully embrace the concept of “TOGETHER we’re BETTER!” She also answered the call of many in First Colony to bring back the First Colony Art Bazaar on 11/26/22 10a-4p! Several weekends of successful Midtown Row’s Maker’s Markets, down in December of 2022, now on to some long awaited SweetheART Markets in February of 2023, collaborating, spreading the creative vibes further… we held our inaugural SweetheART Markets at Indian Fields Tavern’s Big Barn on Sun 2/5/23, at Alewerks in Williamsburg on Sat 2/11/23  and added a few artists to the indoor lineup of artisans at Frothy Moon Brewhouse on Sun night 2/12/23!  

Continuing throughout 2023- We’ve been steadily growing our 1st Sundays markets at Indian Fields Tavern…getting ready for Spring of 2024 when their on site brewery, 5 Fields Brewing, will officially open! 

We’re closing out our 2023 popups with Cohosting First Colony Art Trail(our Director’s Neighborhood- She’ll have 5 artisans set up in her yard at 160 John Rolfe Lane, Williamsburg, Va) with a number of sites on 12/2/23 11a-5p(including complimentary SIPS at each stop) and our final 1st Sunday-a Holiday Market on 12/3/23 at Indian Fields 11a-4p! 

We’ll start 2024 with a Sweetheart Market at Indian Fields on 1st Sunday 2/4/24 11a-4p and one at Alewerks in Williamsburg on 2/10/24 12-5p.
