2017 Boardwalk Art Show

June 15-18

20th-35th streets on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk
FREE admission

Celebrating 62 years!

MOCA's Boardwalk Art Show presented by PNC Bank is the biggest fundraiser for the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. 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. 

This year join us on the boardwalk to meet amazingly talented artists and see their work up close. While here, join in the fun at Family Fest or at the Beer Garden and enjoy live entertainment throughout the weekend. If you’re looking for a special treat, purchase tickets to the Boardwalk Beach Club presented by Steinhilber's for a catered lunch, valet parking, private bathrooms and open bar. Whatever your interest, you’ll have a great time in Virginia Beach this Father’s Day weekend. We look forward to seeing you on the boardwalk!
