The ViBe Creative District serves as a vibrant center for various creative industries at the Oceanfront District, and encourages local creatives to inspire each other, their crafts and their community. Locals and visitors can soak in the ViBes at one of the district's monthly First Fridays, Second Saturdays, and VB Flea, and watch homegrown ideas come to life when experiencing active local artist’s studios at the Virginia Beach Art Center and world-class exhibitions at Virginia MOCA, or sampling local flavor at the weekly Old Beach Farmers Market.
Nestled within the Oceanfront area is the ViBe Creative District, Virginia Beach’s cultural arts enclave, which is a hub for artisans of all disciplines ranging from culinary, music and traditional art to leather working and woodworking. While you can find all manners of artwork within the quaint shops and coffeehouses that comprise the area, the district is a work of art in and of itself. Look no further than the murals, most of which were done by local artists, that fill the ViBe with wonder and color and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
To see all of these murals by foot makes for an easy, one-mile walking tour, that is a must for all who are visiting.
While this eclectic district may be known for its colorful walls and homegrown craftsmanship, the artisan spirit of the ViBe District is present in each of its restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and distilleries. From mouthwatering brick oven pizzas and soul-satisfying baked goods to craft spirits and locally roasted coffee, the palette of flavors in the ViBe is a work of art that you won't want to miss.
