Festival on 8th provides the ideal setting for your perfect event. Our venue has been hosting Virginia Beach's prime events for over three decades—cultivating a loyal following through our commitment to great food, impeccable service, attention to detail and a hunger to exceed the expectations of our clients and their guests. Through the years, we have gained access to some of the area's top vendors that we feel work well at our venue and have delivered a
