SUMMER 2022

Friday, August 5, through Sunday, August 7

A Weekend in Norfolk! You’re invited to join us for our seventh annual town-wide summer festival, to celebrate all the wonderful things there are here to see and do. We’re still in the planning stages, but we can tell you that firehose water soccer will be back, there’ll be concerts at the Music Shed, and work by artists and artisans all over town. We can only post a few specifics now, but we will be filling in the calendar columns below from here on out…sign up to be notified when most new events have been posted or keep coming back to see what’s new!

For a bigger sample of what you might find, take a look back at last summer’s events …and be sure to 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!
