The Richmond Folk Festival will return in the fall, live and in person, to celebrate its 18th anniversary the weekend of October 7-9, 2022. The festival has become one of Virginia’s largest, drawing fans each year to downtown Richmond’s riverfront to celebrate the roots, richness, and variety of American culture through music, dance, traditional crafts, storytelling, and food. Featuring five stages and showcasing music and dance from more than 30 artists from around the nation and the world, the Richmond Folk Festival promises, as always, to return with a culturally diverse and impressive program.
The free, three-day event is presented by Venture Richmond Events, in partnership with the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA), the Center for Cultural Vibrancy, the Children’s Museum, and the City of Richmond.
The Richmond Folk Festival is a FREE event – you can enjoy the performances, the Richmond Times-Dispatch Virginia Folk Life Area & Stage, and the CarMax Family Area at no cost. Food, drink and merchandise are available for sale.
