The month of May is packed FULL of fun events in Virginia Beach. A couple of these May events in Virginia Beach are favorites, and we are excited to tell you what good times are ahead of us for this month!

May is especially an amazing month for wine lovers! There are two HUGE wine festivals that your inner wino will love to attend! First wine festival up is the 10th Annual Spring Town Point Virginia Wine Festival. This event will take place the first weekend of May, which will be May 7th until May 8th. There will be over 200 different types of wines at this wine festival at Town Point Park! Town Point Park is located in Downtown Norfolk, which is only a short drive from Virginia Beach. The short drive here will obviously be so worth it! You can’t beat this wine festival if you love Virginia wines. Wineries from all over the state of Virginia will be in attendance and they are bring their best wines to share. The hours of this event are from 11:00 AM- 6:00 PM on both days.

The second wine event happening in Virginia beach in May is the 13th Annual International Spring Wine Fest! Unlike the first wine event of the month, this one will include wines from all over the world. Wines from countries like Chile, Argentina, Italy, New Zealand, and of course France will all be available for sampling and/or purchase! This is an extraordinary day for people who love wine because they can sample so many at ONE place! The venue of the International Spring Wine Fest is Neptune's Park at the Oceanfront (located at 31st Street). May 14th is the date of this delicious event!

Cosplay enthusiasts have a blast at the Tidewater Comicon! This VB event will take place at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. This venue is perfect for the Tidewater Comicon because it is a huge ordeal! People dress like their favorite cartoon comic book character. People really take their costume seriously here- and for good reason! There is a costume contest for all who enter. This is a great place to meet others who share the same interests as you. This popular VA Beach event is going to take place May 21-22 all day during both days.

Next up is America’s favorite Strawberry Festival! The annual Pungo Strawberry Festival will take place during the last weekend in May, with the dates of May 27-29th. This year will be the 33rd year that the Strawberry Festival will be celebrated! People LOVE this event and travel from all over the region to attend. This is one of Virginia’s favorite festivals. There are so many things to buy here, and not just strawberry related! Although, you can buy just about anything strawberry flavored here. Bring the kids for this event for carnival rides and petting zoo areas. There is something for everyone at this famous festival. This festival is free and open to the public.

Another event to end the month of May is the Salute To Summer. Located on the Boardwalk at the Oceanfront, this concert series is dedicated to the men and women who serve our country! This year's Salute to Summer includes live performers that everyone can enjoy. There will be local talents as well as nationally recognized bands. Salute To Summer is a great way to kick off the summer all while celebrating the BRAVE men and women who serve the USA. The dates of this event are May 27-29th.
