About Us

As one of the premier Virginia Arts events, the Seashore Art Festival is an event that celebrates the arts in our community. Scenic First Landing State Park gives patrons a beautiful setting to view and acquire original works of fine art and crafts. The event provides entertainment, shopping, dining, and gallery exhibits to area locals and visitors alike. During the Festival you can enjoy:

    •    More than 50 artist booths with original works of art for sale where you can meet every artist in person

    •    Art galleries where award-winning work in all media are on display and for purchase

    •    Performers who provide entertainment at an outdoor amphitheater, including music and dance

    •    Food vendors who provide ethnic and healthy food choices along with plenty of traditional fair food options

    •    An exhibit of Art from students residing within the City of Virginia Beach.

    •    A “Kids Create” area that provides children with guided art enrichment activities and hands-on experiences, as well as the ever-popular face painting

    •    The Festival Store, where you can purchase art posters, logo clothing, and other Festival memorabilia


The (NAC) Nature Art and Community Foundation is a not-for-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers who are passionate about its mission. All profits from the Festival are transferred to the Foundation that distributes it back into the community.




 As the world grows ever more virtual people increasingly crave genuine face-to-face community and are finding it at Art festivals, where a shared interest can lead to transformative experiences!
