The Neptune Festival is a private, non-profit organization that produces over 40 events in Virginia Beach each year. From free concerts and seaside wine tastings, to athletic events and a 32-block long celebration on the boardwalk—celebrating the beach life since 1974!
The Festival has vast geographic coverage and is well respected in the special events industry, as demonstrated by the consistent recognition of its flagship event, the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend, as one of the Top 100 Events in North America and among the Top 20 Events in the Southeastern US.
The Neptune Festival’s most popular event—Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend—begins on the last Friday of September and is the largest annual special event in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
There are 40+ EVENTS, which range from sporting activities such as golf, volleyball, tennis, 8K run and surfing competition to the art and craft show, which alone attracts almost 300 exhibitors. The Boardwalk Weekend also includes the ever-popular International Sand Sculpting Championship, the Grand Parade, and three stages of entertainment. Pre-Festival events encompass the Wine Festival, Senior Citizens activities, End of Summer Bay Bash, among others.
