Open Norfolk

Welcome to OpenNorfolk!


OpenNorfolk welcomes you to join us for a safe, kick-off party at each of your new Neighborhood Spots!

Enjoy food trucks + music + more!

We look forward to sharing more about the new safe, outdoor pop-up spaces + hearing about what you’d like to see at your new Spots!

What is a Neighborhood Spot?

OpenNorfolk is a boots-on-the-ground community assistance program that is helping local businesses open safely under The Governor’s Phase 1-3 Guidelines. In Phase 3, OpenNorfolk will continue to assist local businesses while focusing on neighborhoods and communities, aiming to fill needs for outdoor programming, safe places for families and kids, and community activation. The program will provide temporary, flexible Neighborhood Spots that ensure that the communities in which they are built can deliver their vision for a safe, healthy, educational summer pop-up park.
