Richmond Folk Festival

The Richmond Folk Festival will return this fall, live and in person, to celebrate its 19th anniversary the weekend of October 13-15, 2023. 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.

The FREE event hosts 200,000 people over a three-day weekend. Featuring six stages and showcasing music and dance from more than 30 performing groups from around the nation and the world, the Richmond Folk Festival artists will once again make up a culturally diverse and artistically excellent program.

Visit the Official Richmond Folk Festival website for all information!

The Richmond Folk Festival is presented by Venture Richmond Events in partnership with the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA), Virginia Humanities, Center for Cultural Vibrancy, Children’s Museum and the City of Richmond.
