June update for WIN events August 3

Events happening during the annual WIN - Weekend in Norfolk, a town-wide festival taking place this year, August 3,4 and 5 are coming in fast and furious!  We are listing the most current list of events here so that visitors and residents alike can plan their day -- or better yet, days of "winning" summer fun before leaving home!  The fun begins with an early bird bonus at Infinity Hall on August 2, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. with a free Open Mic Night for those that love to entertain and be entertained.

Events Get In Full Swing on August 3, 2018

The Country Club on 50 Golf Drive in Norfolk is hosting an Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors will learn about the club's nine-hole golf course designed by A.W. Tillinghast in the late 1920's. Copies of Anthony Pioppi's new book "The Finest Nines" will be available for purchase. Please note, due to a tournament in progress, visitors will not be able to test the course.

For art lovers, The Artisans Guild located at Station Place will host a variety of demonstrations by artisans from 12 noon to 5 p.m. There will also be three tours of the stained glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Maitland Armstrong in the Battell Chapel of the Church of Christ Congregational, on 12 Litchfield Road from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  In the evening, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., The Norfolk Artists and Friends is hosting an opening gala reception to celebrate their 10th-anniversary exhibition at the Battell Stoeckel Gallery on 17 Stoeckel Road. This very special exhibition will showcase paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, jewelry and other media

For the romantic, marry or renew your vows on beautiful Norfolk Green from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. there are even bouquets supplied, ring bearers and witnesses standing by. Please make a reservation (contact and, if you’re getting married, bring your license.

For families, there is a Nature Walk from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at City Meadow Park with biologist John Anderson.  To round out the fun, there is a Puppet Show from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Norfolk Library featuring Monkey and Dino's Funky Puppet Show, a side-splitting delight for kids of all ages.

For music lovers, don't miss the concert at the Music Shed from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. This ticketed event will feature the Emerson String Quartet. The first half of this program features music that conveys what violinist Eugene Drucker said of the Bartók Quartet No. 3, “deeply marked by the weight of history.” The second half of the program is devoted to Beethoven’s great Opus 132 quartet, whose slow movement is a song of thanks, as Beethoven had recovered from a serious illness from which he thought he might not recover.
