COVID-19 Event Update

We are closely monitoring the ongoing concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID -19) and want to keep our partners and supporters informed on how we are addressing the situation.

Our utmost concern is always the well being and safety of our partners, visitors, volunteers, employees and the community at large. With this in mind, we will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with the City of Virginia Beach and other agencies to determine appropriate action steps for all future events.

In conjunction with Governor Northam’s recently-issued statewide Stay At Home Order, we are very disappointed to announce that Neptune's Spring Wine + Food Festival planned for May 9, 2020 is cancelled.

If you have purchased a ticket or a table to Neptune’s Spring Wine + Food Festival, we have several options for you!

  1. Defer to 2021: You may defer your 2020 Spring Wine + Food Festival ticket or table to the 2021 event (to be held May 2021). There are no deferral fees, and the deadline to defer is May 1, 2020.
  2. Transfer purchase to another Neptune Festival event: You may transfer your ticket purchase to another Neptune Festival event taking place in 2020 - Neptune’s Coastal Craft Beer Festival (August 22, 2020), Neptune’s Fall Wine Festival (September 12 or 13, 2020), or Neptune’s 8k Race (September 26, 2020). There are no transfer fees, and the deadline to transfer is May 1, 2020.
  3. Donate your ticket purchase: Consider donating your event ticket or table purchase fee to the Neptune Festival! As a 501-C3 non-profit organization, your donation will help maintain and enhance the Neptune Festival’s mission of serving the citizens of Virginia Beach. We strive to engender a spirit of community pride, fellowship, camaraderie and cohesiveness for all facets of the city. Additionally, your gift will support the hard work of the countless volunteers who dedicate their time to support the Festival and its partnering charities. If you choose this option, an official acknowledgement of your donation will be mailed to you for tax purposes.
  4. Get a refund: You may receive a refund of your event ticket, less the $2 processing fee charged at time of purchase. The deadline to request a refund is May 1, 2020

An email has been sent to the address used when purchasing your ticket. Respond to that email by May 1, 2020 with your preferred course of action. If you do not respond by May 1st, your ticket purchase will be considered a donation. If you have any questions, please email us!
