Virginia International Tattoo

Norfolk, Virginia

The Virginia International Tattoo — long regarded as the most patriotic of the world’s great tattoos — thrills audiences year after year with an awe-inspiring spectacle of music and might. A brand new show every year, the Tattoo is more than a performance, it is an experience.

2021 Event Update

The Virginia International Tattoo, originally scheduled for  April 2021 at Norfolk Scope Arena, will take place 3-6 June 2021 at Old Dominion University's Kornblau Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium. The magnificent stadium will allow for an incredible show with social distancing and the safety benefits of being outside. The Festival is taking advantage of the stadium's expansive outdoor layout, plus easy access to parking, the downtown Norfolk area, and popular regional attractions. And this outdoor edition of the Tattoo will offer all the pageantry and inspiration that guests have come to expect from the Tattoo over the past 23 years.

Virginia Arts Festival's top priority is the health and safety of all patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff; we have safely welcomed thousands of patrons to several in-person and digital events throughout the past year. However, in conformance with Governor Ralph Northam's statewide restrictions on gatherings, and due to the continued threat of COVID-19, Virginia Arts Festival continues to make adjustments to some scheduled events.
