A Richmond, Virginia Community

The Richmond Folk Festival features more than 30 performing groups on seven live music stages with continuous music and dance performances, along with a Virginia Folklife demonstration area, children's activities, a folk arts marketplace, regional and ethnic foods and more. The FREE three-day festival is one of the largest events in Virginia, drawing visitors from across the country.

The National Folk Festival has been held in 27 communities around the country and spent three years on downtown Richmond’s riverfront from 2005 through 2007. The “National” has moved to Butte, Montana, but Richmond is continuing the cultural celebration by presenting its own festival with the same commitment to quality and authenticity established by the National. Germinating festivals of their own is part of the mission of the National Folk Festival, hence the reason for its three-year stay in selected cities.
