Virginia International Tattoo

Mark your calendars and get ready! Join fellow members of ASTA and NACTA at a sensational event in Norfolk, Virginia on Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1, 2017.

This awesome program "Kick Off" is the VIRGINIA INTERNATIONAL TATTOO, the largest tattoo in the United States and the third largest in the world (after Edinburgh and Nova Scotia).

Sunday's schedule begins with a "hullabaloo" at noon on April 30 which will include a pipe band competition and the possibility of meeting with some of the 1000 participants in the Tattoo. The Tattoo, held at the Scope Arena, (201 E Brambleton Ave, Norfolk VA 23510) will start at 2:30 and last to about 4:30; it will feature bands from Australia to the United Kingdom and numerous bands and dancers from throughout the United States.

Following the Tattoo, we will rendezvous at the "Spirit of Norfolk" for a dinner cruise that will include music and dancing.

There is a room block at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel (777 Waterside Drive, Norfolk VA 23510) for the evening of April 30; cost is $69 plus tax. On Monday morning, we will enjoy a sponsored breakfast with some presentations which will be followed by a historic culinary lunch. Norfolk is rapidly becoming a center for innovative regional cuisine.

For those arriving on Saturday afternoon, there will be an additional parade of marching bands and floats taking place before that day's performance of the Tattoo.

The link for the reservations at the Sheraton is listed below. There are a limited number of rooms in our block, so if you would like to attend, reserve your room NOW! Our group tickets for the Tattoo are $30 per person. The dinner cruise aboard the Spirit of Norfolk will be $50 per person.

Reservation deadline is April 19, 2017

Please make checks (for Tattoo and dinner: $80 per person) out to ASTA CAC and mail them to Richard Schwartz.
