Community Exploration


Throughout the year, the Norfolk NATO Festival facilitates community exploration opportunities for NATO Personnel and their families. We recognize the challenges that many families face as they come to a new country and adjust to a life far from home.   Therefore, it is our honor at the Norfolk NATO Festival to welcome these families to our area with fun, engaging opportunities to explore Hampton Roads.

Past events include:

  • NATO Night at the Norfolk Tides
  • Family Day at the Norfolk Botanical Garden
  • NATO Family Day at a Norfolk State University Football Game
  • NATO Night at the Virginia Symphony Orchestra
  • And more!

Each year, the Norfolk NATO Festival hosts NATO Family Zoo Day, the largest NATO community event of the year! Complimentary admission to the Zoo, lunch, & children’s activities at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk!
