From 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. Over the past decade, these major events have helped to turn our historic waterfront city into a booming Mid-Atlantic tourist destination.  From its harbor side sites to its beautiful beach fronts, Norfolk never lacks for entertainment – just take a look!
