Location

24th Street Park
Free Event

Virginia Arts Festival’s Virginia International Pan Fest scheduled for May 8-9, 2020 will not take place as planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please stay tuned at vafest.org for revised dates for a summer Virginia Arts Festival Steel Pan celebration.

The Virginia International PAN Fest is a musical adventure set to the soothing sounds of steel pan music. The festival’s casual atmosphere appeals to the island community and people of all ages who are intrigued by the unique sounds and style of steel drum music! Fusing together the rhythm of steel bands, ocean breezes, and great international food, the breathtaking Virginia Beach oceanfront becomes an “island paradise” for the weekend.      

Co-produced with the Virginia Arts Festival, the Virginia International PAN Fest at its core is a steel drum band competition featuring over 20 high school, college, and community bands from throughout the United States. Bands attend workshops on Friday at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. These workshops are led by nationally-known steel drum artists and educators.

2020 Schedule Coming Soon!

All performances are free and open to the public.

The Virginia International PAN Fest has been recognized as one of the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Events. The festival also holds membership in the Student Youth Tour Association (SYTA).
