The Neptune Festival goes beyond the boardwalk to give back to the City that we love. In addition to producing events, the Neptune Festival provides exposure and fundraising opportunities for nonprofit, civic, and charitable organizations.

Each year, nonprofit organizations collectively earn over $100,000 from their involvement with the Festival. Not only are we sharing funds, but organizations given space on the boardwalk have much to gain - animals adopted, donations received, and awareness raised!

In 2022, we are proud to partner with the following organizations:

Toby's Dream Foundation ensures that children living with life-threatening illnesses in Greater Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore of Virginia have the opportunity and resources to imagine and experience their most fantastic Dream

Governor's School for the Arts a center for innovation that develops excellence, nurtures creativity, inspires artistic vision, and builds communities with a passion for the arts

Virginia Beach Lifeguard Association educating the citizens and visitors of Virginia Beach regarding safe practices in the ocean and on the beach.
