Seafood, dancing and music to headline Deltaville Ballpark event

“Slapnation” (above) will perform on Saturday, August 13, at Deltaville Ballpark.

The smell of crab cakes, oysters, and barbecue along with the sounds of nine of the top musicians from Hampton Roads will fill the evening air of Deltaville Ballpark on Saturday, August 13. Slapnation, one of the premier bands in the Tidewater region, will be on hand to rock the ballpark for what promises to be a fantastic night for the entire family.

The concert is the rescheduled finale of the Deltaville Seafood Festival event that was postponed by severe weather in May. While the date has changed, the plan is still the same: local lump crab cakes, local fried oysters, shrimp cocktail, hot dogs and barbecue will headline the food offerings, while craft beer from Richmond’s Legend Brewing Co. and wine of the Blue Ridge’s Chateau Morrisette will be available. 

Slapnation’s history dates back for over 40 years. Two outstanding vocalists front an incredible 4-piece rhythm section and 3-piece horn section. A 3-man lighting and sound crew run the show. 

The stage will be set on the infield of historic Deltaville Ballpark and will face the enclosed acres of outfield grass. The public is invited to bring blankets and lawn chairs, and there will be plenty of room to dance the night away. 

Gates will open at 5 p.m., and the music plays from 6-9 p.m. A limited number of tickets are still available for advance sale at Hurd’s Hardware and J&W Seafood, as well as online at Advance tickets are $10, and will be $15 at the gate. Ticket-holders are encouraged to bring the whole family—kids 12 and under will be admitted for free! Proceeds from the concert will go toward the continuing restoration of Deltaville Ballpark by the Deltaville Community Association (DCA).

The DCA thanks all of the sponsors who are making this event possible. They include Platinum sponsors Hunter Law Realtor, J&W Seafood, Middle Peninsula Insurance & Financial Services, Griffin Heating & Air, Deltaville Market, C&F Bank, Walmart, and Norton Yachts; Gold sponsors Waterway Guide, EVB, and MetroCast; and Silver sponsors Broad Creek Marina, Deltaville Yachting Center, Hawkeye Home Inspections, Regatta Point Marina, Stingray Point Marina, and Timberneck Marina.
