MOCA's annual Boardwalk Art Show in June is the biggest fundraiser for the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. As juried shows, fine artists from around the country make their way to the Virginia Beach boardwalk at the oceanfront to share their talents with show visitors. The show is consistently ranked in Sunshine Artist Magazine’s top 40 fine art shows. With an average attendance each year of more than 200,000, this four-day festival attracts collectors and artists from across the nation. The show runs along the Virginia Beach boardwalk overlooking the sandy beach and Atlantic Ocean.
