It is that time of year – time for Richmond’s beloved and most festive springtime event, Easter on Parade. Easter on Parade will take place on Sunday, March 31 from 1pm-5pm located between Davis and North Allen Avenues. The event is free and will be held rain or shine. Historically, Easter on Parade has attracted 25,000 to 30,000 Richmonders from all over the region.

First held in 1973, Easter on Parade is a community event that celebrates spring with friends, families and pets gathering to walk the closed-off Monument Avenue while enjoying live music, arts and crafts, vendors and plenty of bonnets, pastels and bunny-inspired outfits. The People and Pet Bonnet Contest will take place at the stage located at Allen & Monument.

This year marks the second year the event organizers partnered with official sponsors to help produce the event. The 2024 Sponsors are Green Front Furniture and Lantz Robins, P.C.in addition to a partnership with BHMVA.

Located in Farmville, VA, Green Front welcomes generations of Richmond families to shop a massive yet curated selection of furniture, rugs, and home decor. There will also be a sneak peek of our new Monument by Green Front preservation and renovation project in the heart of Monument Ave. We proudly support this storied event and look forward to another Sunday of family, fun, and celebration. We hope to see you there!” said Green Front President Furniture President and CEO Richard “Den” Cralle III.
