Summer may be on it’s way out but the fun never stops in Virginia Beach. In fact, September offers major events coupled with some of the most pleasant weather of the year. Since the peak tourist season is over, it enables visitors and locals more of the beach and fun to themselves. Here are some ideas to put on your events calendar to jumpstart your fall.

International Sandsculpting Championship

Always one of the BEST things to do for FUN in September!


One of the most anticipated events of the year is the annual International Sandsculpting Championships. With an international field of sculptors representing 11 countries from around the world has caused this event to grow year after year. It’s been the signature event of the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival since its inception, and has grown to the most prestigious event of its kind in the nation.


Fall Horseback Riding in Virginia Beach

Horseback riding in Virginia Beach is a BLAST!


There are not many places you enjoy horsebackriding on the beach. Virginia Beach is one such place to enjoy what is to some… a “bucket list” item. This is an adventure that people all over the world want to do… but it’s just not available everywhere. During the fall it’s the hottest attraction on our beach. Take in all the sights, in a whole new way, by galloping down the shore. Chase Foster and his dedicated team show you their love for horses and the great outdoors. Put this one on your list NOW!

Attend the Annual Oceana Air Show for Some Super Sonic Thrills
