Music Lovers


Great music from hot local bands to national headliners, opera to Broadway musicals and the Virginia Symphony featuring classical and modern music.

Norfolk is Music! We are home to the music festivals, Virginia Symphony, Virginia Opera, the Virginia Arts Festival featuring the Virginia International Tattoo, Broadway Series at Chrysler Hall and several concerts venues including the NorVa, voted the best small venue in America by Rolling Stone Magazaine. Take a stroll along Norfolk's Legends of Music Walk of Fame.

Stay tuned for all the great new entertainment possibilities when Waterside District, a $40 million overhaul and rebranding of Norfolk's iconic Waterside Festival Marketplace which will allow visitors to enjoy the best national and local brands and concepts in an atmosphere that integrate the downtown with its waterfront, opens Spring 2017.

Many of our outdoor festivals at Town Point Park have a wide variety of music from headliners to local bands. Norfolk Harborfest, Norfolk Waterfront Jazz Festival, Bayou Boogaloo, Latino Music Festival, Opera in the Park, ETC (Embrace the Culture) Music & Arts Festival, and the Midsummer Fantasy Festival.

Enjoy TGOV (thank Goodness It's Ocean View) Friday summer concert series in Ocean View as well as Big Bands on the Bay on Sundays.
