2023 Virginia Festival Guide

All your festival listings for Richmond, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Bristol, Roanoke, Centreville and all of Virginia.

Welcome to Virginia’s most comprehensive festival guide where you can find all of the music festivals, food festivals, cultural festivals, art festivals, historical festivals, wine and beer festivals and more in such cities as Richmond, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Bristol, Roanoke, Centreville and everywhere in-between in Virginia.

This guide does NOT include county/animal fairs, conventions/expos or events lacking the 3 essentials of a festival (food, vendors and entertainment). Feel free to contact me if you have a question about your event.

Also, please check dates and festival websites in links provided as time approaches, especially for any listings where there is an * (asterisk) next to the date. This means that the date is unconfirmed.

“My Review” means that it’s a link to my review of that festival.

If there is a festival you do not see but would like listed, please Contact Me and let me know about it, especially smaller festivals that don’t have the advertising.
