From Panorama Caribbean Music Fest Website:

The PANorama Caribbean Music Fest is a musical adventure set to the soothing sounds of steel pan music. The festival's casual atmosphere appeals to the island community and people of all ages who are intrigued by the unique sounds and style of steel drum music! Fusing together the rhythm of steel bands, ocean breezes, and great Caribbean food, the breathtaking Virginia Beach oceanfront becomes an "island paradise" for the weekend.

Co-produced with the Virginia Arts Festival, the PANorama Caribbean Music Festival at its core is a steel drum band competition featuring over 20 high school, college, and community bands from throughout the United States. Bands attend workshops on Friday at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. These workshops are led by nationally-known steel drum artists and educators.

Friday evening features a concert in the 24th Street Park.

On Saturday bands compete for ratings and the coveted Grand Champion Award. In the evening, steel drum headliners play on the main stage. All performances are free to the public.

The PANorama Caribbean Music Fest has been recognized as one of the American Bus Association's Top 100 Events. The festival also holds membership in the Student Youth Tour Association (SYTA). The festival is free and open to the public.
