ViBe Creative District

Specialty Galleries, Shops & Restaurants

Nestled within the Oceanfront area is Virginia Beach’s own cultural arts enclave—the ViBe Creative District. A hub for artists and spirits, roasters and restaurants, workouts and wares, museums and more, the ViBe is where our locally-owned creative businesses have set up shop to share their passion and inspire a sense of discovery in locals and visitors alike. Whether you’re here for a few days or here for good, there’s always something special going on.

Virginia Beach’s first arts district is anchored by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Located between 17th and 22nd Sts. from Pacific to Parks Ave., the district has artisanal shops, art studios, vintage boutiques, luxury and antique furnishing specialists, a variety of culinary arts, a locals’ sub shop, and even the Chesapeake Bay Distillery. Weekly and monthly events like the Old Beach Farmers Market, Art Market and Green Market, First Fridays and Second Saturdays give a taste of the town and bring entertainment and community art projects you can be a part of. Visit the 18th Street Parklet to see dozens of hand-painted fence murals created by local art students, amateur and professional artists. Take a walk on the wild side on one of four crosswalks designed by area artists and painted by the public. And be sure to keep an eye out for large-scale public art projects in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
