SUMMER 2021

Friday, July 30 through Sunday, August 1

A Weekend in Norfolk! After a long, difficult year in which we could not ask you to visit us in person, we invited everyone to join us in Norfolk’s many beautiful outdoor settings.

Whether people chose to tour the historic village, hike one or more of our many trails, picnic somewhere with a view or enjoy coffee and ice cream while they listened to music downtown, they found activities for themselves and their whole families. See below for details.

For a look back at summer 2019 events, see Music, Art, Nature, Kids and &More; to find a place to stay, see Eat, Sleep, Shop.

Click here for what we did in WINter 2020 (before the pandemic)…we hope to be doing it again next year! Sign up to be notified when new events are posted!

And for our virtual festival, visit the Weekend in Norfolk YouTube channel. It has music, art, activities for kids, tours and a lot more about our wonderful town. Available 24/7 from wherever you are, whenever you want…. Enjoy!
