Unsilent Night is coming back to Downtown Norfolk!

Join in Downtown Norfolk’s 5th annual Unsilent Night, an outdoor boombox parade that brings together art, music, and people during the holidays. 

All you need to do is show up at MacArthur Square with a musical device and some holiday cheer! After we gather, the crowd will walk through Downtown and the Freemason neighborhood, holding aloft boomboxes and speakers playing artist Phil Kline’s electronic musical masterpiece. The music creates a layered, beautiful sound that emanates throughout as you walk down city streets twinkling with holiday lights.

Meet between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. at MacArthur Square by the Christmas tree. The promenade begins at 5:30 p.m., winding through Downtown, under the Granby Street lighting, over to Freemason, and ending at the Selden Arcade.

Selden Market will be hosting a gathering after the promenade with hot apple cider from Vessel Craft Coffee and marshmallow treats from S'MORES AMORE, plus evening holiday shopping.


The promenade route through Downtown is:
1. MacArthur Square
2. Granby Street
3. W. Bute Street
4. Botetourt Street
5. W. Freemason Street
6. Dunmore Street
7. Pagoda & Oriental Garden
8. Elizabeth River Trail
