The health and safety of our patrons, artists, and employees is our top priority. Norfolk Festevents is actively monitoring the incidence of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our region. We have been asked how COVID-19 may impact upcoming events. Norfolk Festevents is following guidance from local health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the City of Norfolk regarding large gatherings, including CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19.
At this time, all scheduled events will take place as planned. However, if you are sick or feeling you are getting sick, we ask that you please stay home. Currently, older adults and persons with underlying health conditions are considered to be at increased risk of severe illness and complications from COVID-19. The CDC recommends that people in high-risk groups consult with their healthcare provider about attending any large gathering.
If you do choose to attend events, please keep in mind the CDC recommendations on how to keep yourself and others healthy:
All of Norfolk Festevents’ scheduled events are set to take place at outdoor, open-air venues, Town Point Park and Ocean View Beach Park.
If the Norfolk Waterfront Jazz Festival is forced to move into Norfolk Scope arena due to inclement or unfavorable weather, all event staff will be required to wear face coverings and non-vaccinated guests will be encouraged to wear a face covering. Fully vaccinated guests have the option to wear a face covering based on Norfolk Scope Arena’s current COVID-19 protocols.
Should an artist require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test as a condition for admission in the future, we will fulfill that requirement. However, at this time none of the artists booked to perform at our venues in 2021 have requirements for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test as a condition for admission.
