S.A.Y. Festival

35th street in Norfolk

The goal of the S.A.Y (Scholar, Arts, and Youth) Festival is to promote academic achievement while we connect and serve our local communities, to provide the community with a fun, family-friendly atmosphere to celebrate the beginning of a new school year, and to fellowship with friends — new and not so new.

The event features free school supplies and a block party with great food and entertainment. Visit WHRO's area to meet Sid the Science Kid. Also receive free books and enjoy fun activities.
