Beach Music Cruise-In blends bands on the beach and hot rods on the boardwalk with dancing under the stars in a jam-packed blast from the past! From Friday May 8th to Sunday May 10th top Beach Music bands from up and down the East Coast descend on the Virginia Beach oceanfront in a nostalgic salute to the “good old days” of cool cars and hot tunes.
A three-day series of paid concerts is presented on a stage built right on the beach at 30th Street. Evening concerts on Friday give way to a full day of entertainment, including the car show, on Saturday and more daytime concerts on Sunday. A deeply discounted General Admission weekend pass is $15 in advance or at the Box Office on Friday and Saturday. Daily General Admission tickets are $10 in advance or at the Box Office on the day of the show. Tickets are available in advance at ticketmaster.com.
The FREE Saturday car show feature turns the boardwalk into a local version of “Route 66,” with cars and trucks from yesterday and today competing for trophies and Best in Show cash prizes. There is a registration fee for entering vehicles in the car show. Individuals from throughout the region will display their autos. Hot rods, street machines, classic cars, and more will line the Virginia Beach boardwalk for several blocks, where thousands of car enthusiasts and families can view the vehicles in a beautiful beach setting.
