ROYAL ORDER

WELCOME, MEMBERS OF NEPTUNE'S ROYAL ORDER!

Since the beginning of the Neptune Festival in 1974, dedicated citizens of the Virginia Beach community have been chosen to play the part of beach ambassadors as King Neptune and his Royal Court.

Upon completion of your reign as a Neptune Festival Triton or King, you are entitled to join the Royal Order community. As a member of this community, you receive benefits such as tickets to events, invitations to networking opportunities, and more. Membership dues are required, and must be paid annually. The payment deadline for membership in the 2019 Royal Order is January 31, 2019.

The Royal Order community has become a vital part of the Neptune Festival organization. Volunteering precious time away from your home and work lives, Royal Order members assist in the kind of behind-the-scenes support that is invaluable - from fundraising to event setup, from stuffing invitations to answering phones - you do it all. THANK YOU!
