The Virginia Arts Festival was established as a cultural tourism program by the city of Norfolk to encourage travel to Hampton Roads. Every spring, this festival presents internationally acclaimed artists and aims at displaying the region's natural beauty and entertaining attractions; it also shows off the city's prosperity in historic, cultural and educational institutions. In the last year, more than 22,000 students participated in the educational programs, while 1,540 artists involved themselves in the fest. This festival now takes place in eight cities across Hampton roads in different concert halls, opera houses, museums, theaters, and churches.
