Norfolk, VA – Welcome in the 2020 holiday season with the Town Point Holiday Marketplace & Movie Night on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020, from 2pm to 8pm at Town Point Park along the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront.

Presented by Norfolk Festevents, the Town Point Holiday Marketplace & Movie Night features a unique holiday shopping experience with more than 15 local artisans and small businesses selling a wide variety of handcrafted items, including jewelry, paintings, candles, oils, soaps, apparel, and much more.

The Holiday Market also coincides with a free live screening of the movie “Elf” in a safe, socially-distant, family-friendly environment in Town Point Park. The showing of “Elf” will begin at 6pm.

This holiday season, Town Point Park serves as a festive outdoor wonderland and is the perfect setting for holiday photos with family and friends with a free, socially-distant visit from the big-man himself, Santa Claus. During the festivities, guests can also enjoy complimentary hot chocolate, while seasonal craft beers, mulled wine, eggnog, and more will be available for purchase.

Leading up to the event, local chef and culinary historian Patrick Evans-Hylton will be sharing his favorite holiday drink recipes in a video series on Facebook. The series begins this Sunday, Nov. 15, and occurs every Wednesday and Sunday prior to Dec. 5.

The highly anticipated Holiday Homecoming Christmas Tree serves as the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront’s iconic centerpiece throughout the holiday season, standing 42’ tall, and one of the tallest holiday decorated trees in the city. In addition to the Holiday Homecoming Tree, Town Point Park will feature holiday light displays, wreaths, bows, and garland galore lighting up the park every evening starting November 21, 2020 and will remain open to the public through January 4, 2021.

See below for a full schedule of events and a listing of participating Marketplace artisans. Additional details on participating vendors, artisans, and crafters will be posted on All vendors are subject to change.
