2nd Annual CoVa BeerFest & Food Truck Rodeo!


Amazing Craft Brews, Food Truck Delectables, Fun & Entertainment—
The 2nd Coastal Virginia Magazine BeerFest & Food Truck Rodeo is Around the Corner!


CoVa BeerFest 2Whether you’re from VA Beach, or a visitor to our sandy shores, I know where you should be on April 23. Rural Virginia Beach (the historical Military Aviation Museum) is the back drop of Coastal Virginia Magazine’s 2nd Annual BeerFest & Food Truck Rodeo. No, you don’t need a lasso to attend, though you should be prepared to ride out the day from noon till closin’ time. Last year, fans of craft beers and foodies alike were blown away by this outrageous and raucous good time.

There are four types of attendees to this particular BeerFest. Those who come for the fun. Those who come for the brews. Those who come for the food. And of course, those who come for the whole shebang!

Come for the FUN

 There are some people who don’t like beer. I know, right?! But they exist. If you are one of those people, the last thing you’d want to do is come to a BeerFest. The name itself may scare you away; a fest of beer. But a general admission ticket to the CoVa BeerFest provides more than just the amber brew. Grab your lawn chairs or blankets, and come enjoy a beautiful spring day in the idyllic Pungo area of Virginia Beach. Dance to the rocking beats of live music—Buck Shot, co-headlining with Brian Grilli. Take advantage of the location! The BeerFest will provide full access to the venue, the internationally renowned Military Aviation Museum. Peruse over 50 World War I & II aircrafts! Or you can shop the booths, see what local specialty vendors are up to. There will be exciting games, prizes and so much more! Come out yourself to experience the electrifying atmosphere.

Come for the BREWS

Maybe you’re not interested in all the bells and whistles. At your heart, you’re a beer snob. Then hit up this event and get your fill of amazing craft beers. The $20 Tasting Ticket, which you purchase on site, doesn’t just give you tiny samples, but a 16 oz. souvenir cup that you can fill as many times as you want! Try everything! Or if you find one beer you love, go back for more! No measly little Dixie cups at CoVa’s BeerFest. You are sure to find something you love with 11 Craft Breweries participating. Your Tasting Ticket also allows you into the VA Wine Garden, if you want to mix up your day a little.

Come for the FOOD

The Food Truck rage is in full swing! No longer do we turn up our noses at these mobile eateries. Some of the best eats can be purchased from these humble kitchens. CoVa Magazine has rounded up some of the best example of food truck cuisine for their Food Truck Rodeo! Something for all tastes is available. Seafood, barbeque, Latin, Thai and much more! You won’t have to hunt down a food truck, CoVa has assembled them all in one place for your tasting pleasure.

Come for the WHOLE SHEBANG!

This is the most likely attender to the CoVa BeerFest & Food Rodeo. Someone who wants to experience all this exciting event has to offer. Tickets are on sale now! So you can reserve your spot.

Come to support a local charity

The best part of this event, is that a day of fun for you is also a fundraiser for a worthy local charity. Proceeds from the Tasting Tickets will benefit The Virginia Gentlemen Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to provide aid to local families impacted by disabilities.
