Norfolk County residents are encouraged to mark their calendars for the second annual Norfolk Community Days from June 3 to 10, 2023.
“After the success of our very first Norfolk Community Day hosted in June 2022, I was thrilled to hear that staff have expanded this year’s event to a whole week,” said Mayor Amy Martin.
County facilities in each Ward, such as community centres, museums, libraries, fire halls, pools, arenas, and parks, will welcome members of the community to attend free recreational, social and cultural activities throughout the week-long event. The County is also partnering with local community groups and businesses to offer other events like a “Touch A Truck”, brewery tours and live music throughout the week.
Community Days will conclude with the newly expanded Norfolk Night Market, hosted by the Norfolk County Agricultural Society, taking place on June 9 and June 10. The Night Market is an open-air vendor market that will include concerts sponsored by AMPLIFY Norfolk each night featuring local talent and national headliners. Both nights will feature a “Party on the Track” event before and during the concerts.
Community groups and local businesses interested in participating in or partnering on events are encouraged to contact Norfolk County staff member and Project Lead, Matt McGinty. Individuals looking to volunteer are encouraged to reach out also. “Norfolk Community Days is a great way for the folks of Norfolk to reconnect with their communities and enjoy a variety of exciting activities we have to offer,” says McGinty.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to support Norfolk Community Days, from event sponsorships and prize donations to in-kind contributions. Local businesses interested in participating can contact Matt McGinty at [email protected] for more information.
