34th Annual Pungo Strawberry Festival

34th Annual Pungo Strawberry Festival
May 27th - 28th ranked this festival as 
#3 America's Best 
Spring Food Festival!

Nothing signals the start of summer like fresh-picked strawberries, and Virginia Beach’s Annual Pungo Strawberry Festival is the perfect way to welcome the warm weather. The city's kick off to the Memorial Day Weekend is with this family friendly country fair. The highlight of the festival is, of course, an abundant supply of scrumptious strawberries straight from the fields of Pungo. More than 50 food vendors will do their best to tempt the taste buds with an assortment of strawberry pies, tarts, shortcakes, jellies & jams.

Along with a variety of other foods and non-alcoholic refreshments, visitors can enjoy a pie eating contest, strawberry bake-off, an old fashion hometown parade, live entertainment and popular local bands on 3 stages, one of the largest carnivals on the east coast, livestock show and sale, pig races, 4-H exhibits, pony rides, a race car display, a multi-million dollar military equipment displays, 100+ arts and crafts vendors including a youth art show, and much more! 

This festival has grown over the decades from nearly 50,000 in 1983... to its present size of over 120,000.  Admission is free, and all proceeds are donated to community and civic service groups.  Festival organizers are proud to have returned over $600,000 to the community thus far, and this doesn't include all the money raised by community groups on site. Be sure to visit the Charity United Methodist Church Youth Group who will have a "Strawberry Taco Stand". It's one of the most popular stops for festival goers! Our fearless leader at Siebert Realty (and of the youth group), Patrick Keenan, will be helping the kids serve up the tasty treat, so be sure to stop by, say hello, and try one! They're soooo good! 

The festival will be held May 27-28, 2017 in the heart of the Pungo community at Princess Anne Road and Indian River Road from 9am to 7pm each day. For more festival info, call 757-721-6001 or visit their website at: Pungo Strawberry Festival

Little Free Library
Did you know there is a "Little Free Library" right here at Sandbridge Beach? Eve and Jeff Butts have sponsored a Little Free Library at 340 Tuna Lane in Sandbridge Shores (1 mile south of the Fire Station). The library is one of 19 registered in Virginia Beach and the first to come to Sandbridge. 

Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. Anyone can pick up a book or two, or bring a book to share.  It is a great way to share your favorite books with the community. The library is for all who live in or visit the Sandbridge community. The book inventory changes continually so there are always new ones to choose from. It caters to all reading levels, from adult to children. The library system functions on the honor system; everyone contributes to ensure there are always quality books inside.  


For those unfamiliar with the Little Free Library network, the organization was started by Todd Bol of Hudson Wisconsin in 2009 as a tribute to his mother, a former school teacher who loved reading. The idea behind the Little Free Library is to promote reading for children and literacy for adults. Amish carpenter Henry Miller of rural Caston Wisconsin became the primary craftsman of little free libraries as the movement spread. 

In 2012, Little Free Library became a nonprofit corporation. The concept grew exponentially, and by January 2015, the total number of registered Little Free Libraries in the world was conservatively estimated to be nearly 25,000 with thousands more under construction.  For more information about this organization, visit

We hope you'll take advantage of our beach community library by stopping by the Little Free Library box at 340 Tuna Lane.  Take a book or give/return a book... and enjoy the read!

Adventure Park at the Virginia Aquarium

Adventure Awaits... in The Trees!

Fun in the great outdoors—There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium!  Located in the majestic trees of the Aquarium, between the Marsh Pavilion and the Bay & Ocean Pavilion, you will find our amazing “aerial forest park.” The first of its kind in Virginia! Experience “adventure in the trees” on your own or with friends, family and parties. Ages five to adult are welcome. Looking for Virginia Beach activities? This is a must-do outdoor experience that the whole family can enjoy!

Look up—You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge presents a different challenge of how to get to the next platform. A series of bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.

Relax—You don’t have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! Choose from thirteen different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).

Climb with Confidence—You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Our Park Guides are available to assist throughout your visit.

  • Discounts for Siebert Guests ** $5 Off **
