Norfolk Harborfest
June 6-8, 2014

The Annual Norfolk Harborfest® is in Town Point Park along the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront. For four memorable days, the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront transforms into an exciting playground for people of all ages. The historic waterfront festival offers a weekend packed with exciting activities on land and sea! Harborfest® includes tall ships and the Parade of Sail, the largest fireworks show on the East Coast, local, regional and national entertainment, family activities, unique and unusual performances, water activities and much more.
Free and Open to the Public!
There's a lot going on behind all the fun and games at Festevents. Since 1982, we've been attracting millions of people per year to the Virginia waterfront, creating outstanding sponsorship opportunities for our regional and national marketing partners. Norfolk is in the heart of Hampton Roads, the nation's 27th largest Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). From this central location, Festevents organizes events from March through December, each of which draw anywhere from 1,000 to hundreds of thousands of visitors. Through a unique mix of festivals, special events, concerts, movies, tall ship visits and much more, Festevents has become one of the nation's premier event marketing organizations.

Launch your summer with the area's Biggest Dock Party!

One of the main reasons for Norfolk Festevents' success is that it capitalizes on Norfolk's natural appeal as an inviting waterfront city. The seven-acre, newly renovated Town Point Park, with its outdoor concert amphitheater on the Elizabeth River, provides an ideal locale for the festivals, concerts and special events. Other sites for large and small events include TowneBank Fountain Park next to Waterside Festival Marketplace, Ocean View Beach Park on the Chesapeake Bay, the marina-front Waterside Outdoor Amphitheater, Nauticus, The National Maritime Center, Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center, MacArthur Center, the area's premier shopping mall and Harbor Park, Norfolk's beautiful and critically acclaimed baseball stadium.
