As festival season in Virginia Beach rolls on, thousands of country music fans are expected to hit the Oceanfront for the inaugural BEACH IT! Country Music Festival. This new music festival that features some of the biggest names in country music and more than 20 emerging artists will take place on our sandy shores June 23-25.

Crews have already started building out the festival footprint in preparation for next weekend, causing some City-owned parking lots to close temporarily. The City wants to ensure residents and visitors are informed about the latest closures and event plans leading up to the festival.

The following areas near the festival footprint are closed or limited to the public.

Closed June 12-30:

  • 2nd Street Connector
  • Rudee Loop Parking Lot
  • 4th Street Municipal Lot (behind the fencing)
  • 3rd Street Gravel Lot

Closed June 22-25:

  • 4th Street Municipal Lot (North of the fencing)
  • Street Parking in Rudee Loop
  • A small portion of the 2nd Street Lot
  • Rudee Loop road access

Access to Rudee Loop will reopen June 26. All parking areas affected by the festival will be open by Friday, June 30.
