Did you know that events in Town Point Park can also be enjoyed from the water? Approach via the Elizabeth River offers a unique experience for our guests during festivals and concerts. The majority of events in Town Point Park allow boaters to dock along side the Promenade to enjoy all the fun and festivities all the while relaxing on their own private watercraft.
Boater Packages are first come first serve. Please note that advance reservations are strongly recommended, especially during some of our more popular events that are listed below. To make advanced reservations on any of Norfolk Festevents Year 2017 events in Town Point Park, please call the Festevents office Monday - Friday at 757-441-2345 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.Guests deciding to dock at Town Point Park the DAY OF the event without a reservation, may do so IF there is still space available at the time. To do so, please pull up to the Town Point Park Promenade to talk to a Festevents Representative. If there is no space to dock during an event at Town Point Park, guests can also try to dock at the Waterside Marina. Again advanced reservations are strongly recommended for all events taking place in Town Point Park.
