The Carytown Watermelon Festival returns to Richmond’s Mile of Style this weekend for its 36th year. The annual celebration of the watermelon takes place in the heart of Carytown on W. Cary Street.
Expect a bevy of local food and retail vendors, food and drink specials at many of Carytown’s unique and vibrant restaurants, live music, and of course, plenty of cold, fresh watermelon sliced up and served by the bowl.
Last year festival organizers estimate over 118,000 people attended and over 3,000 watermelons were consumed.
It all takes place Sunday, August 11th in Carytown, W. Cary Street between Nansemond Street and N. Arthur Ashe Boulevard from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
