History. Now Showing.


The Richmond Region offers a year-round schedule of musical, theatrical, artistic and dance performances. Many professional arts groups, including the Richmond Ballet, Richmond Symphony and Virginia Opera, perform annually in the Region.


If you prefer theater, choose from Theater IV's family performances, the Richmond Shakespeare Festival's outdoor productions or the "Broadway in Richmond" series at the Landmark and Carpenter Theatre. There's also lots of local theater with high levels of talent -- including the Firehouse Theatre Project, the Barksdale Theatre, and productions by area colleges and universities.


Want to enjoy an outdoor concert? You'll find many held May through September. The Region also has dozens of art galleries, a couple of comedy clubs and a few film festivals. Our full selection of local arts and entertainment includes:


Galleries & Museums - From nature paintings to sculptures to cutting-edge modern art, the Richmond Region boasts some of the Virginia's finest art galleries and museums.
