Last year, more than 190,000 people visited 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, 2 years running. The Richmond Folk Festival is a FREE event – you can enjoy the performances, at no cost. Food, drink and merchandise are available for sale.
You can take a free shuttle from Spring Rock Green on Midlothian and the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Building all weekend long. Park for free in one of these lots, and get dropped off on the festival grounds. Buses depart every 20 minutes.
