Norfolk Festivals and EventsFrom early spring through mid-winter, Norfolk plays host to a wealth of premier festivals and special events, providing entertaining, culturally enriched experiences for individuals and families alike.

Many of these "signature" events draw thousands of visitors annually, from across the region, the nation and eastern Canada, and over the past decade have helped to turn our historic waterfront city into a booming Mid-Atlantic tourist destination.

From its harbor side sites to its beautiful beachfronts, Norfolk never lacks for entertainment – just take a look!
