Norwalk Cove WiFi News

Norwalk Cove is pleased to announce it has completely updated it's facility wide WiFi system! This new state-of-the-art system is called "Norwalk Cove WiFi" should should insure better coverage at every dock and faster speeds.

We want your feedback as you use the new system (both good and bad) so we can fine tune any glitches.

The old WiFi system "Norwalk Cove" is still operating in some locations in the marina. Please migrate your traffic to the new network "Norwalk Cove WiFi" as the older system is phased out.

This Weekend!   The Norwalk Oyster Festival Returns 

Good Food, Fun for the Kids, Music, Art and Craft Vendors, Music, The Oyster Pavilion, Liquid Libations, (did we say Music ?) along with the Pirates Coast Adventure, (an interactive encampment with 50 pirates giving festival-goers a taste of what seafaring life was like during the golden age of piracy from 1650-1750).      Take your dinghy up river to visit!

New this year are the Nerveless Nocks Motorcycle Thrill Show, which is one of the largest motorcycle shows in the world and dates to the 1840s and the Chevy Kids' Cove Theater for kids, including the Cirque de la Oyster, featuring Chinese acrobats.
The Music starts Friday evening at 6:00 and the Festival runs through 8:00 PM Sunday evening.
