Open Air Events
Each year the City of Norfolk receives numerous requests from individuals and groups to conduct Open Air Events on city owned or managed property. SevenVenues and the City of Norfolk understand that these special events contribute to Norfolk's quality of life. They enhance tourism, provide an economic benefit to local businesses, promote cultural diversity and provide affordable entertainment.

An Open Air Event is defined as any organized activity involving the use of, or having an impact on, public property, sidewalks, parks or streets in a manner that varies from current land use or requires a permit. Open Air Event requests are managed by SevenVenues, the City of Norfolk's entertainment bureau.
