The day is a chance to celebrate all that is good and unique about this county.
Nearly 300 events are taking place today and across the weekend across various communities, large and small, to mark the special day.
Norfolk Day was launched in Dereham in February this year by the EDP, Norwich Evening News and BBC Radio Norfolk.

Today tweets included messages from businesses, charities and many residents.

Jarrold department store in Norwich tweeted: “We are all set for #norfolkday Come and meet the creatives and makers that make Norfolk great!”
And Insp Lou Provart from Norfolk Police tweeted: “Happy #NorfolkDay good citizens of this fine county. The overnight @NorfolkPolice team have held the line and all is looking good for the day ahead. Proud to live and work in this beautiful county.”
