Check out our latest Doodlefest in Norfolk, Virginia!

Every Doodlefest is different. This May we worked with Enjoy to create a Neon-District Doodlefest in Norfolk, Va. Thanks to all the artists and scribblers who contributed to our wall of Doodles.

Who: Everyone!

Doodling is for everyone! You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy it!

Doodlefest is also totally kid friendly.

What: Doodling!

Doodlefest is a three-day gathering of a diverse group of local artists and the Norfolk community around the idea of doodling, collaboration, spontaneity, and imperfection.

Doodling is an accessible, relatable way for all people to get together around art. Get ready for some open doodling, Post-It doodling, wall doodling, string doodles, 3D doodles, mural doodling, doodling workshops, and as much doodle paper as we can get our hands on.

Where: ENJOY:

429 Granby Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23510

ENJOY: is a non-profit space dedicated to the joy of creative exploration, with a mission to raise funds for local, culturally focused charities. We do this by hosting exceptional creative experiences in food, art, and culture.

How: Teamwork

Doodlefest is the brainchild of artist Roy Zoner, but it has taken an amazing team and many generous donations to make it happen.

Doodlefest is a not-for-profit event with the aim of bringing art right into the hands of anyone with a pen and a blank margin. If you would like to donate time, talent, or art supplies (yay!), just fill out the Connect With Us form at the bottom of this page. Doodle Coordinator, Amy of The Solver Space, will get right back to you!

All proceeds go to the Norfolk artists who participate and to the H.E.R. Shelter Sweet Haven Bakery Work Program.

When: May 17-19, 2019

Music, food, and drinks for artists who want to come have fun and fill the space with doodles! Contact Amy for your tickets!
