Coming into town this weekend? We've put together a list of calendars around town and picked a few highlights for visitors. We've also got some free stuff and family fun for you. Have fun!
We're a little biased because we think our calendar is pretty great...but only because it is!
Richmond Oktoberfest! Es ist gut. We used Google translate to tell you that this is good. It's gonna be good. Strap on your lederhosen, get your self to Richmond International Raceway and get ready to slap dance* (*we can not guarantee there will be slap dancing.)
RVANews is your inside source while you're in the region. We highly recommend checking it out if you want to know what's what in the Richmond Region. Their calendars are awesome too.
RVANews has the James River Writers Conference on their schedule. We're huge Hugh Howey fans so we clearly think you should go if you can (and maybe take our copy of Wool and get it autographed? Please?)
This is one of the most comprehensive and easy to read calendars in #RVA. Bookmark it now (after you bookmark VisitRichmondVa.com, of course.)
Virginia. Hops. Harvest. These three things come together at the appropriately named Virginia Hops and Harvest Festival this weekend in Chesterfield. Gates open at noon and music starts at 1:30.
Style Weekly is the local alt weekly. Check it out for listings, long form reporting and local flavor.
Haunted Henricus! Haunted tours led by historical interpreters. You've only got a few more weeks of haunted hay rides and houses. Get on this one now.
DEALS, FREE STUFF AND FAMILY FUN
Go Karts and Paintball half off. If that isn't the American dream, we don't know what is. You can get this deal on Living Social right now!
Daily Deal Richmond has a Rollerdome family four pack for only 10 bucks! Listen, rollerskating is probably going to be a thing again, soon, maybe. It might not be, but don't you want to be ahead of the trend if it does come back around? You do and this deal can help you get there. Also, this deal comes with a pizza.
Holler at us on Twitter if you have questions, need recommendations or just wanna say hi.
