The Virginia Arts Festival Presents An Unforgettable Tattoo Experience

The Virginia International Tattoo is renowned for presenting the traditional sounds of the massed pipes and drums, sharing a profound sense of American pride and patriotism, and celebrating our friends and allies through the exciting spectacle of international performers.

A cast of over 900, including bagpipers, drummers, military bands, dancers, singers, drill teams, color guards and performers of all kinds will travel from the four corners of the globe to Norfolk in April for the 2013 Virginia International Tattoo.

This awe-inspiring show is the largest tattoo—military musical display—in the U.S. The theme of this year’s Tattoo is “Homecoming,” focusing on the profound joy and pride accompanying the return of the men and women who devote their lives to the safeguarding of freedom.

Two hours prior to each show, the Scope Plaza will come alive with dancers, musicians, and much more, all presented in trademark Tattoo style. Interact with artists, indulge in food from local vendors, vote in our audience-judged piping competition, grab a drink from our beer garden—these are only a handful of reasons to “Get Tattooed” two hours earlier in 2013
