Graduation Parking

Ongoing construction at the Virginia Beach Convention Center is resulting in a loss of parking spaces. As a result, please note these important parking changes.

  • School-issued graduation parking: To help ensure that all families are guaranteed parking, schools are issuing two parking passes per graduate. These passes will enable pass holders to enter the designated lots. Guests with school-issued graduation parking passes should enter 19th Street from Birdneck Road.  Only those with a parking pass will be permitted to park in the designated Virginia Beach Convention Center lots.  A map is provided on the back of the parking pass and is also available here.
  • Ridesharing/Drop-off area: A drop-off area for guests has been designated on Parks Avenue to the east side of the Convention Center. View map.
  • City Municipal Lots: For those without graduation parking passes, city municipal lots are open to the public and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No parking fees will be assessed for those attending graduation; notify the parking attendant upon arrival. School buses serving as shuttles will provide service between the 19th Street municipal parking lot and the Virginia Beach Convention Center beginning 90 minutes before the graduation ceremony and up to an hour after the ceremony has concluded.  

Guests with school-issued graduation parking passes should enter 19th Street from Birdneck Road.  Only those with a parking pass will be permitted to park in the designated Virginia Beach Convention Center lots.
