Multicultural Norfolk

Norfolk celebrates the rich ethnic diversity of its population with sights, sounds, attractions and special events that pay tribute to the city's long multicultural heritage. 

Attend one of our cultural events and you will find yourself devouring some Loukoumades at the Greek Festival, admiring the United Kingdom bagpipers at the Virginia International Tattoo or learning to meringue at the Latino Festival, the choice is yours! Unable to attend one of the festivals? Our authentic international restaurants await. From ramen bowls at Alkaline, to hot tamales from Luna Maya or a hot cup of goulash at the Monastery Restaurant - Norfolk has so much international spice to offer!
