Waterside Festival Marketplace

A day in Hampton Roads would not be complete without visiting The Waterside...it's exciting, memorable, and an entirely unique shopping, dining, and entertainment adventure. Poised at the mouth of the Elizabeth River on Norfolk's downtown waterfront, The Waterside offers major restaurants, specialty retail shops, a food court for a quick meal, and exciting nightlife with music, dancing and live entertainment presented by Festevents.

Day and evening cruises and ferries depart from The Waterside Marina and both Nauticus and Norfolk Tides Harbor Park are within walking distance. Adjacent to both the Marriott and Sheraton Hotels, parking is available in garages. A free bus service, known as the NET, connects The Waterside with many other venues in the downtown area.
