Cultural Affairs' Globally Inspired Gatherings (VB GIGs) is a new series of free and low-cost public performances throughout the city: at parks, libraries and performance venues. Through the development of the city’s arts strategic plan, Arts Plan 2030, citizens voiced the need for more diverse, multicultural programming opportunities in Virginia Beach. The City listened and VB GIGs aims to bring world-class, culturally rooted performing artists to Virginia Beach residents in their neighborhoods and nearby venues. 

VB GIGs pilot season began June, 2019 with a Destination Date Night at The Z and consisted of four inaugural events featuring celebrated touring artists and valued collaborators from city departments to community cultural organizations. Visit for complete list of events.
