The East Coast She-Crab Soup Classic focuses on one of Coastal Virginia’s most-loved seafood delicacies. This coastal cuisine has been a staple of area menus for decades.
Restaurants serve their individual recipes and compete for People’s Choice Awards, determined by the ballots of those attending. Critic’s Choice Awards also are given by a panel of four leading regional cuisine experts. Live music from Steve Daley! Deeply discounted general admission sampling tickets are available in advance at ticketmaster.com. General admission tickets may also be available at the Box Office on the day of the show, if available. We highly recommend getting your tickets early!
After the early afternoon event, spend the day at the beautiful Virginia Beach Oceanfront and the dozens of world-class restaurants. Along with the 3-mile Boardwalk, Virginia Beach is home to exciting attractions and activities including Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center and some of the most scenic holes of golf on the East Coast.
