2022 Holiday Yule Log Bonfire and Christmas Marketplace

December 3 2022

12 PM-8 PM
Town Point Park 113 Waterside Dr, Norfolk, VA

Norfolk, VA – Shop local, visit Santa, and welcome in the holiday season at the 9th Annual Holiday Yule Log Bonfire & Christmas Marketplace on Saturday, December 3, 2022, from noon to 8pm at Town Point Park along the Downtown Waterfront Norfolk.

 

The free event features an expansive shopping experience showcasing local small businesses & artisans, as well as a cozy bonfire, a live ice carving demonstration from Chisel & Shaker, seasonal cocktails & warm beverages, and FREE Santa Claus visits, all in a beautiful, snowy winter wonderland along the Elizabeth River.

 

This year, the event also presents even more specialty, family-friendly entertainment. With the cancellation of the Virginia Children’s Festival earlier this fall, a wide variety of Children’s Festival has been rescheduled for the Holiday Yule Log Bonfire & Christmas Marketplace, including the Santa Express train rides, fun & games with DJ Melody, holiday-themed arts & crafts, meet & greets with Disney princesses, and much more. View below for a full list of specialty entertainment, as well as the participating marketplace vendors.

 

Also new this year is the Sensory Inclusive Zone, a dedicated area for those wanting a break from the noise, action, and crowds. The area will be staffed and be designated for families with special needs.

 

The Holiday Yule Log Bonfire & Christmas Marketplace and Norfolk Festevents’ corporate offices at 120 West Main Street will also be serving as a donation location for WAVY TV 10’s Coats for Families coat drive. New and like-new coats can be donated. Visit WAVY.com for more details.
