For 13 years the Virginia Beach Funk Fest Beach Party has brought the “funk” to the oceanfront for two days of electrifying music, great food, and unique vendors.

Music is the heart and soul of the festival, to be held on the beach at 24th Street Friday- Saturday, August 25-26. This festival is rain or shine.

This popular music genre draws influence from R&B, jazz, gospel, and blues. Funk artists like James Brown and George Clinton (the leader of Parliament-Funkadelic) inspired many musicians and helped spawn other genres like disco and hip hop.




General admission to the Virginia Beach Funk Fest Beach Party is free, but capacity is limited.

For our guests desiring a closer, more comfortable viewing experience, we offer a ticketed Preferred Viewing section.

The Preferred Viewing ticket is a two-day pass providing a closer viewing area (patrons bring their own beach chairs), dedicated portable restrooms, and a cash bar. Preferred Viewing admission is guaranteed, while general admission is limited and strictly first-come, first-served.

Every patron must have a ticket.

This year’s festival will be held on a different site on the beach at 24th Street. New Virginia Beach event guidelines designed to provide a safe festival-going experience include limited entry gates, a clear boardwalk and adjacent areas for use as emergency exits, and limited crowd capacity.
