Corona Virus Update

The Wakefield Foundation is not open to the public for classes, events or meetings due to continuing Corona virus restrictions and for the safety of our citizens. We had planned to reopen on September 1, but the current rise in cases had pushed that back. We hope that reopening in in the mid-September to early October time frame will be possible. If you have any questions, please contact the Wakefield Foundation office at (757) 899-6005.

The Troxler Library is Open to the public with normal hours.

We are very hopeful that the Flower & Art Show will return in May, 2022.

We are very happy to announce that Community Day will return to the Foundation on Saturday, October 9, 2021. Details are available below.
