A stunning weekend for the Richmond Folk Festival wrapped up on Sunday. We’re still recovering which is why these photos are late. We weren’t the only one that thought the Festival was great. According to Venture Richmond, the organizers, a record $136,000 in donations were raised this year, almost $6,000 of that total from the newly launced text message program. Over 200,000 people attended the festival over the three days and they drank a record amount of beverages. 

Even Senator Tim Kaine swung by for a song.
