Weekend Radar: East End Music Festival, Oktoberfest, Virginia State Fair, Kickers

So many events going on so little weekend.



RVA East End Music Festival at Henry L Marsh III Elementary School

A wonderful opportunity to support Richmond students and hear some great music.

Since 2016, the RVA East End Festival has raised over $400,000 to support music, visual arts and performing arts programs at eight elementary, middle and high schools in the East End communities of the Richmond Public Schools system. The free family event will feature performances by local professionals including members of the Richmond Symphony, as well as some of RVA’s most talented youth musicians.

Virginia State Fair
September 23rd – October 2nd

It’s the big grandaddy of fairs. Why isn’t it called the Virginia Commonwealth Fair? Regardless it’s a big deal. I expect with this weather it’ll also be a really big crowd. I usually save my fair time for weekdays to avoid the crowds but you do you.

You’ve waited all year and now you can finally enter our gates! We know the event only lasts a short while, but the memories will last a lifetime!
