October 9 – 11
From 2nd to 7th Street on the Richmond Riverfront
Celebrating its eleventh year, the Richmond Folk Festival has become the largest folk festival on the East Coast.
Each year, VFH’s Virginia Folklife Program produces the much loved Virginia Folklife Area, and this year we’ll be bringing some of our favorite artists.
The Virginia Folklife Area is always a festival favorite, and this year will include many young bluegrass and old time all stars from around the Commonwealth. Our traditional crafts area will highlight some amazing cultural traditions that have made their way to Virginia from Bolivia, Mongolia, and others. And it’s free!
