Petting Farm: Our friends and hosts at Hunt Club Farm are opening the use of their Petting Farm for the kids and kids at heart. Ride a pony, hold a chicken or feed a goat at Hunt Club’s petting farm in Virginia Beach – a favorite destination of locals and visitors alike. Home to dozens of friendly critters, this unique petting farm offers families the chance to get up close and personal with its goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, guinea hens, geese, llamas, alpacas, donkeys, pigs and more. There is also a beautiful bird aviary filled with interesting fowl such as peacocks, crowned cranes, pheasants and doves. Add to your drive-in experience for $5.00 per person (a $12 value).

Food Trucks & Vendors: Come hungry and leave happy while supporting small local businesses with a wide assortment of food trucks and vendors to complete your drive-in experience. Online ordering with pick-up service will be available.

  • Food Trucks TBA
  • Vendors TBA

The drive-in is the perfect experience to come together and support our local community while practicing social distancing and keeping each other safe.

  • Please remain in your vehicle during the film, with the exception of utilizing the restroom and picking up from vendors.
  • As re-opening Virginia progresses, we may cancel the use of the petting farm or move to a time-limit in the petting farm to maintain social distancing.
  • While waiting for restrooms and food trucks/vendors, please leave 6 feet between yourself and other visitors.

100% of the proceeds from Dreamland Drive-In benefits The DeGood Foundation's Imagination Library literacy program. In partnership with Dolly Parton, every month, The DeGood Foundation mails free, brand-new, age-appropriate books to children enrolled in the program on the Virginia Peninsula.

  • To date, The DeGood Foundation has mailed 4,500+ books to children.
  • Every month, over 450 books are mailed to children.

Proceeds from the event will help the program expand it's coverage area to get more books into the hands of more children in Hampton Roads.
