North American Sand Soccer Championships

Virginia Beach Oceanfront
The Annual North American Sand Soccer Championships returns to beautiful Virginia Beach. While it might not be the first thing you envision when you think of a day at the beach, this is one spectacle you won't want to miss as spectators and players alike converge at the world’s large sand soccer festival.
To be a part of the action, simply round up 10 friends to join your team, design some fun shirts and get your sand socks ready. While you’re here, plan to snag a seat in the U.S. OPEN Stadium as we host some of the world’s elite beach soccer players, as well.
Until June 13
From May 7 – June 13, we invite our 2021 graduates to celebrate their hard work and years of accomplishment in Town Center at “Graduation Expressions” – a public art exhibit.

Additionally, a life-size graduation cap will be suspended over the lower fountain in the plaza. A larger-than-life custom grad themed picture frame will also be displayed. Don’t miss these photo opportunities! Come to “your” Town Center and celebrate a job well done.
