Visiting Richmond & Central Virginia
Even as winter chills set in, Richmond and surrounding central Virginia communities welcome visitors with a wealth of ways to have fun, both indoors and outdoors. Special events, community festivals, and family-friendly activities – there’s a little something for everyone in central Virginia this season.
What better way for families visiting Arlington and Alexandria to embrace the cold than with a little ice-skating? Now through March 2nd, the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden invites visitors to glide along the ice amid the dazzling sculptures for which the garden is so well known. The rink opens at 10 a.m. every day but Sunday, when it opens at 11 a.m.
“Embracing the cold” might be an understatement for what participants in the 2016 Shiver in the River are doing on January 30th. Held in downtown Richmond, the festival features a community 5K walk/run, live music, food, and the opportunity to jump in the James River for a great cause.
Space Bop 2016 is an immersive and edifying experience for youngsters at the Athenaem in Alexandria, select days from February 10th through 26th. It’s a musical representation of the cosmos, with dazzling lights and sounds, and easy-to-understand imagery. Check the schedule during your visit – most shows begin at 10 a.m.
Alexandria visitors can pay tribute to the Father of His Country on February 13th at the 2016 George Washington Birthnight Banquet & Ball at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. It’s a night of talented re-enactors, period dress, dance, a banquet, and more. The party begins at 5:30 p.m.
