Dominion Energy Riverrock, organized by Venture Richmond Events, LLC and Sports Backers, began in 2009 and is now the nation's premier outdoor sports and lifestyle festival, bringing athletes, spectators and musicians to Brown’s Island for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmond’s urban riverfront. The festival features a variety of outdoor sports including trail running, kayaking, biking, bouldering, slacklining, stand up paddleboarding and dog jumping. The event was designed to promote Richmond’s unique riverfront, downtown trails, and whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts.
