Last year, you came and ENGAGED. This year, turn your passion into ACTION!

Answering the demand for civic engagement opportunities for Norfolk's residents (and beyond) to connect their passions and values with organizations making a difference in our city, our region, our state, our country and our world.

  • CivicFAIR: A showcase of the many organizations in our community.
  • Civic Workshops: Learn how city government works, how to lobby your elected officials, turn your passion into action, and more.
  • Meet & Greet: City Council members, School Board members, state Delegates and Senators and U.S. Representatives & Senators (or their regional directors) 
  • Civic Motivation:  Meet others like you who are ready to get to work!
  • Eat some delicious food!

“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”

— President John F. Kennedy

The CivicFAIR is your opportunity to meet community organizations and determine where to channel your energy and interests into positive change. 


Attend informative Civic Workshops led by community members and experts providing effective examples and tips for making a difference in Norfolk and beyond.

In addition to our CivicFAIR and workshops, there will be opportunities to make donations to organizations in need, and lots of other community opportunities!
