Historic Photos of Downtown Norfolk

It’s great to see how the River Point District in downtown Norfolk is evolving but it’s still fun to go back and look at these historic photos to get a sense of what used to be. Make sure to check back, as we are working on growing this gallery!

Downtown Norfolk Concert Series

The Downtown Norfolk Association hosts a concert series during the summer months at River Point Square. Each concert has a beer garden that spans from the pocket park across 3rd street between Norfolk Avenue south to the alley. Downtown restaurants offer a 3-item menu. Attendees text their orders and then pick them up right inside the beer garden!
