Annual Celebration in Richmond
The Festivities & Events of River City
No matter when you decide to visit Richmond, east Virginia usually has an event waiting for you. From state fairs to food festivals, Richmond loves to show off its music, arts, and seasonal celebrations.
Set north of Richland in the town of Doswell, the State Fair of Virginia hits the calendars each September through early October. This fall fair features agriculture exhibits, arts and crafts, and delicious fair food, all at the Meadow Event Park in Caroline County. Established in 1854, the Virginia State Fair also includes the 5K Stampede, carnival rides, and the Miniature Horse Show for you and your family to enjoy.
Heritage celebrations are a special part of Richmond’s event calendar. Don’t miss the annual Richmond Greek Festival in late May, the VCU French Film Festival in April, and the Richmond Italian Street Festival in late September. Other cultural events include the Festival of India held at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in September, and the annual Richmond Oktoberfest at the Showplace Exhibition Center.
Set at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Families After 5 is a summer series where the garden closes late on Tuesdays to allow kids free-range of the Children's Garden. Other Richmond celebrations include downtown’s Richmond Folk Festival in October, the summer-long Dogwood Dell’s Festival of the Arts, and the holiday season’s Old-Fashioned Christmas at Maymont.
