Concert Zone: 5th Street & Oceanfront Erected right on the sand, the 5th Street Stage is a short walk from Rudee Inlet and the 9th Street Municipal Parking Garage. For your safety, no back packs, no coolers, outside food or outside beverages will be permitted into the venue except for small purses (12″x12″x6″ max) or clear 1 gallon bags in the concert site (5th, 6th & 7th street beach area). All bags will be subject to a search. Due to beach erosion & narrow beach, no chairs will be allowed in any Patriotic Festival zone from 4th-7th street (Chairs may be set on the perimeter of the festival beginning at 8th street).

Due to beach erosion, the Virginia Beach Oceanfront site will be narrower than it has been in previous years. The sections will be elongated and further back from the stage. To assist, we have added additional video screens on 6th Street and 7th Street for your convenience!

There are three reserved paid admission zones: 1) VIP Pit Zone (standing), 2) VIP seating Zone (chairs & standing), 3) General Admission Zone (standing). A ticket is required for each adult & child in the reserved Zones.
