Urbanna Family Friendly Events

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 visitors 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 an historic site. Get down and boogie in Urbanna, Virginia.

A Celebration of Urbanna's Colonial History

Starting at 10:00 AM at the Women’s Club in Urbanna. This year’s presentation will be a narrative during which we will bring to life the contributions of three of our important “Founding Fathers” and their families as they sought to establish the town of Urbanna as a port community. Those men are Captain Harry Beverley (1669-1730) of Brandon, the Honorable John Robinson (1683-1749) of Hewick and Colonel Christopher Robinson (1681-1727) of Hewick.

There will be period music before and after the presentation at the Women’s Club. The celebration will continue afterwards at the Urbanna Museum with a presentation on Dr. John Mitchell and the Mitchell Map, declared by the Library of Congress as “the most important map in American history”.
