Two of Virginia’s largest and most beloved events return this fall to Downtown Richmond.

The 2nd Street Festival, in partnership with the City of Richmond, is October 7-8 in the historic Jackson Ward neighborhood, and this year marks its 35th anniversary.

The Richmond Folk Festival, in partnership with the National Council for the Traditional Arts and the City of Richmond, is October 13-15, along Downtown Richmond’s riverfront.

“Venture Richmond Events is proud to produce these two festivals that have brought so much attention to two Downtown neighborhoods – Jackson Ward and the Riverfront,” said Stephen Lecky, director of events for Venture Richmond. “Together they represent a shared celebration of culture and experiences, whether they are the rich traditions of the historic Jackson Ward community or those from around the nation and the world presented on Downtown’s riverfront.”
