Spring is the time of year in Virginia Beach that we have a lot to look forward to! Shops start to open for the season, festivals and concerts begin, and people start heading to the beach. But this year is different thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic.

3. Patriotic Festival: Cancelled

This festival was supposed to take place May 29 -  May 31, 2020.

5. Virginia Beach Farmers Market: Cancelled

Many plans for festivals and events in Virginia Beach are up in the air, and may cancel in the future. Because of that, we will be updating this page frequently.

As we know, it is mandatory for many businesses in Virginia to be closed for 30 days due to this pandemic. That leave the month of March for businesses to be closed and will stay closed until into April.
