The Richmond Night Market (RNM) is preparing for its 3rd season of fresh and unique experiences for the region. Kicking off Saturday, July 10th from 4pm to 9pm, RNM is curating 6 exciting night markets this year in the heart of the City at 17th Street Market.

The Richmond Night Market was presented the 2020 Attraction Partner of the Year by Richmond Region Tourism because of its pivot to a virtual experience and increasing national exposure to the Richmond Market.  Now returning to its in person origin, this monthly open air social gathering held every 2nd Saturday, will highlight creativity, commerce, and community while showcasing the layered and diverse aspects of the artistic scene. Attendees will be able to shop local and visiting artists, participate in interactive stations at the Makerspace, and enjoy live music and a DJ to complete the night.

Featured programming on July 10th includes a musical performance by Testiphy, a DJ set for the evening provided by DJ Prolific and the featured visual artist in the Makerspace, Sone-Seere. “We are looking forward to the Richmond Night Market returning to the 17th Street Market to assist with the growing downtown arts and culture scene and pivot to our new normal as a city,” says Adrienne Cole Johnson, Co-founder of the Richmond Night Market.

Specifically aimed to highlight a curated number of independent artists during each Market, acceptance for artists is rolling and programming for the space is revolving. The goal is to keep the elements unique so that it becomes a natural part of a second saturday routine.

As Richmond continues to reconcile its past and as we necessarily remind ourselves of the 400 year anniversary of the enslavement of Africans on this land, it is no coincidence that the RNM will take place at 17th Street Market.  “We have a lot of history to reckon with. My hope is that – at minimum – we add an additional layer and texture to the history of the space by re-programming and recharging the energy of Shockoe Bottom.”, says Adrienne Cole Johnson, co-creator of the Richmond Night Market.

Pipeline Update Work Continues

The hope is that work will finish up at the end of this month. Work is taking longer than expected.

Published

on

From RVAH20:

Our work continues! It’s progressing! And it’s slower than we thought it was going to be.

Our team is doing detailed, meticulous work with an abundance of care, and doing it right! They’ve also faced some less-than-ideal weather and river levels that were too high.

Our crew is essentially papier-mâché-ing a 43.13″ diameter elevated pipe located in the James River (one of our more tricky, but also more beautiful, work locations) with layers on layers of mesh and more mesh and different sized mesh and epoxy. Before all that, our crews clean each pipe segment with acetone wipes to allow for excellent adherence.

Most importantly, we are SO sorry for the delayed repair process at Pipeline–we know no one likes an elongated trail closure, but we can’t rush this important work.

We appreciate your patience as we complete these repairs to protect the James River and your health and safety when you visit this spot so many of us favor!
The latest we heard was a hope that repairs would be complete by the end of this month. We will keep you updated as we move toward that end-of-October target!
Following the completion of the repairs, our team will once again CCTV (closed-circuit television) the pipe to get an internal look. Only after we check our work and give it the green light will the trail and beaches alongside it be reopened. Until then, Pipeline trail and its adjacent beaches are closed from Brown’s Island (under the 9th Street bridge) to the downstream, eastern end of the trail behind Virginia Street and Vistas On The James.
And, finally, an important reminder: all wastewater flows have been diverted upstream at Tredegar, so any flow you may see leaking at Pipeline currently is river water that’s seeping in from Haxall Canal, groundwater, and/or stormwater from rainfall.
