Norfolk Harborfest®

June 10 – 12, 2022

Every June, the city of Norfolk hosts one of the east coast’s favorite festivals, the Annual Norfolk Harborfest®. This free festival is the largest, longest-running, free maritime festival in the nation.  Enjoy three days of tall ships, the Parade of Sail, festival foods and beverages, live performances, one of the largest fireworks displays on the coast and plenty of fun for the whole family! 

Make the most out of Harborfest Weekend!

Come aboard City Cruises or the Victory Rover Naval Base Cruise for the spectacular Parade of Sail event. Watch tall ships sail down the Elizabeth River in a spectacular two-hour parade. You’ll have the best view of the harbor, with tall ships and over 200 boats and vessels to see.

Explore Norfolk’s science center, Nauticus, with interactive maritime history and science exhibits. You’ll find the Hampton Roads Naval Museum in Nauticus which introduces over 200 years of naval history in Coastal Virginia. Located next to Nauticus is the Battleship Wisconsin, the largest and last battleship ever built by the U.S. Navy. Walk her teak decks, explore interior rooms and discover the vast history of this great ship.

Check out Norfolk’s Waterside District, adjacent to Town Point Park. Waterside District features the best of national, local and regional restaurants and offers live music, festivals, and more. Download our official Harborfest itinerary here.
