Virginia Beach Festivals

Virginia Beach Festivals have always been a huge draw for tourists and locals alike! We are a town that loves to celebrate with festivals. Besides the wonderful beachfront location, the Virginia Beach community has a history of throwing a great party.

From mechanical marvels like the planes of the Oceana Air Show and Monster Trucks to fitness-inspired events like the Rock and Roll half-marathon and the sand soccer tournament, there’s always something to do. Music and food are always applauded, just the types change. Music festivals run the gambit from funk to gospel, and food festivals (like the Pungo Strawberry Festival) also include drink festivals like beer and wine.

So many to choose from! What's your favorite Virginia Beach Festival?
