Events in Urbanna

How did such a small town get such a big reputation? The Urbanna Oyster Festival, of course. Virginia’s official oyster festival hosts 75,000 in the  fall. We have a juried art show, a holiday house tour, concerts in the park, street parades, boat parades, fireworks and a monthly farmer’s market, too. Throw your own party in an English garden, on the waterfront, in a pocket park or at a historic site. Get down and boogie. In Urbanna, Virginia.
