Norfolk, Virginia is one of those delightfully surprising places for someone who hasn’t been there or heard much about it, home to a gigantic naval base for which it’s most widely known. But it’s also a place with a devotion to culture: The 31st Annual Norfolk Jazz Festival runs this year from July 19-21, adding a third day to the popular event this year. The setting is the downtown waterfront, along the Elizabeth River at Down Point Park._DSC7217.jpg

Performers this year include Kirk Whalum, Rick Braun, Norman Brown, Jonathan Butler, Sheila E., Elan Trotman appearing as Souls of Summer, The Jae Sinnett Trio and Stanley Jordan. Tickets start at $28 per day for general admission and $49 for a three-day weekend general admission.
