Festivals, events and concerts

Each year numerous festivals, events and concerts take place along the Riverfront, one of the most beautiful event sites around. Most of the big events and festivals happen on Brown’s Island, located along the James River just south of Tredegar Street and accessible from 5th, 7th and 10th streets. 

Venture Richmond produces Friday Cheers, an annual concert series on Friday evenings in May and June, and the Richmond Folk Festival in October. Venture Richmond and the Richmond Sports Backers coproduce Dominion Riverrock in May. There are a number of other events produced every year on Brown’s Island by third party event planners. Check out the Downtown events calendar for more.
