Labor Day
in Virginia Beach




    Loosen that tie, let your hair down, kick off your shoes, and join us on the Virginia Beach oceanfront this Labor Day weekend for a three-day celebration of the hardworking people that keep our country strong. Rock out to your favorite tunes right on the sand at the Virginia Beach American Music Festival, one of the largest outdoor music events on the East Coast. With an impressive lineup featuring live performances by national, regional, and local acts across all genres, the American Music Festival offers a musical selection fit for all tastes and styles. Enjoy the best of rock, jazz, country, R&B, and more on the gigantic 5th Street Stage, all against the stunning backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.

    And when you’re not jamming on the beach with your favorite artists? Take on Virginia Beach’s 2017 Rock 'N' Roll ½ Marathon! Join over 500,000 participants nationwide for a dynamic, community-focused athletic event. With three distances to choose from, the Virginia Beach Rock ‘N’ Roll Races invite runners to enjoy a course that’s just their speed. Run to compete in the ½ Marathon main event, find your rhythm in the Saturday 5K, or run for fun and make your way across the coast in the Virginia Beach Mile on the Sand.

    Ready to race like a Rock ‘N’ Roll rock star? Give more meaning to your mileage by partnering with one of the many participating local and national charities to raise support, give back, and make a difference. Or, if you prefer to take the weekend at a lighter pace, feel free to kick back, relax, and cheer on the Rock ‘N’ Roll runners as they make their way across the finish line. However you choose to enjoy your well-deserved Labor Day weekend, a Virginia Beach vacation promises an unforgettable retreat and the perfect play-hard atmosphere to close out the summer season.
