Va Beach Carnival
July 18th - 21st 2024

Welcome Back to the Virginia Beach Carnival!

Dive into the heart of Virginia Beach from July 18th to 21st, 2024, for the second annual Virginia Beach Carnival – a spectacular celebration of Caribbean culture, music, and festivity. After a successful inaugural event, we’re thrilled to bring even more vibrant performances, parades, and culinary delights from the Caribbean and beyond.

Virginia Beach Carnival stands as a beacon of unity, showcasing the rich diversity and traditions of the Caribbean, Latin, African, and other ethnic communities. Our event promises an even grander display of colorful costumes, exhilarating steel pan music, and an authentic taste of Caribbean cuisine. Join us for an array of activities designed to entertain and engage all ages, from live concerts to cultural exhibitions, set against the beautiful backdrop of Virginia Beach.

Sponsored by the City of Virginia Beach and championed by Mayor Bobby Dyer, our festival not only celebrates the spirit of the Caribbean but also enriches our local community and economy.

Mark your calendars for an unforgettable journey through the arts, music, and history of the Caribbean at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Stay tuned for our event listings and artist lineup announcements. Let’s make the second Virginia Beach Carnival an even more memorable experience. We look forward to celebrating with you!
