THE RICHMOND FOLK FESTIVAL
OCTOBER 11-13, 2019
Last year this festival attracted more than 220,000 people to downtown Richmond’s riverfront to celebrate the roots, richness and variety of American culture through music, dance traditional crafts, storytelling and food. The Richmond Folk Festival has become one of Virginia’s largest and most-loved events of the year and has been voted as the best musical festival in Richmond several years running. The 2019 Festival will bring a new and similarly amazing list of performers, artists and exhibitors.
HOURS OF OPERATION:
Friday: 6 PM – 10:00 PM
Saturday: Noon – 9:30 PM
Sunday: Noon – 6:00 PM
The Richmond Folk Festival is a FREE event – you can enjoy the performances, the Richmond Times-Dispatch Virginia Folk Life Area & Stage, and the CarMax Family Area at no cost. Food, drink and merchandise are available for sale.
Help keep the Richmond Folk Festival a FREE event! A group of community volunteers carrying orange buckets will be circulating the festival asking for your support. All donations made through the bucket brigade help directly cover the costs of the festival. Suggested donation is $10 per person per day. Thank you in advance for your support!
DO NOT BRING PETS (other than service animals) to the festival. We expect very large crowds and your pets will be more comfortable at home.
