Multiple performance venues at the oceanfront attract thousands of out-of-town visitors and local residents for a “star-spangled” salute to this great country of ours! 

Musical acts offer something for everyone with tribute bands dedicated to stellar acts like Bruce Springsteen, Journey, and U2.

A stage erected on the beach at 20th Street becomes the focal point for a performance by Symphonicity (the symphony orchestra of the City of Virginia Beach) and the Virginia Beach Chorale.  With a program that encompasses patriotic songs, Broadway standards, movie themes, and folk music, nostalgia reigns as the presentation segues into a magical fireworks show that explodes over the oceanfront in brilliant colors and patterns.  Stars & Stripes Explosion is an unabashed tribute to the ideals, personalities, history, and music of the United States.
