We Richmonders love our outdoor events, especially this time of year before it gets too horribly hot. Every week during spring and early summer there are many fun events from which to choose. This week is no exception!
RVA First Fridays
RVA First Fridays – It’s time for downtown Richmond’s fabulous monthly art walk! Galleries, shops, restaurants, non-profits, and more open their doors in celebration of art and community. Each month GrowRVA sets up our food and art market next to Quirk Gallery. Stop by for food trucks, handmade local jewelry, soaps, apparel, photography, baked goods and more! Friday, June 6, 5 pm – 9 pm
Wood Kiln Party
Wood Kiln Opening at Old Tavern Farm – This will be a fun day down on the farm! We’ll be opening the wood kiln and seeing for the first time what 600+ new pots look like. Those pots will be for sale, along with jewelry and crafts from other local artists. The wood oven will be fired and turning out pizzas and bread. There will be live music, food trucks, farm animals, a produce stand and face painting! Come out and support local artists and sustainable agriculture. Sunday, June 8, noon to 4 pm.
Music in the Park
Music in the Park: This monthly concert series is all about fun, family, friends and neighbors getting together to picnic, relax and enjoy great music! This Sunday’s music is provided by Many Nights Ahead – a blue backboned bluebrass band. Sunday, June 8, 6 pm – 8 pm
And of course we’ll be at our regularly scheduled Saturday markets:
South of the James Market – the area’s largest producer-only farmers market in beautiful Forest Hill Park, Saturdays, 8am – noon.
Midlothian Mines Farmers Market – This small but mighty farmers market is just waiting to be discovered! Saturdays 1pm – 4pm
