Festival of the River

Please join us in The Festival of the River. As part of the Festival of the River, we will be hosting a River Clean-up on Saturday, June 9. Registration will start at 11, and the clean-up will be from 11:30 to 1:30. We will meet at Tredegar Ramp and then disperse to 3 clean-up sites: Belle Isle, across the TPott, and east to Pipeline & 14 St Bridge. A sign-up will go live on HandsOn one month before the event. Stay tuned for more details!

A unique coalition including The City of Richmond, Venture Richmond, the Richmond Symphony, VCU Institute for Contemporary Art, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, 1708 Gallery, James River Association, Capital Region Collaborative and other partners announces a special three-day event, The Festival of the River, which will take place on Brown’s Island June 8-10, 2018. This one-time festival will showcase the very best of the James River, Chesapeake Bay and the Richmond Region. Festival highlights will include contemporary art installations, performances under the Symphony’s “Big Tent,” cleanups along and around the River and family-friendly environmental education activities including Back to the Bay in celebration of Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week.
