The 2nd Street Festival in Richmond returns in 2021 for its 33rd anniversary, celebrating the rich culture of the historic Jackson Ward neighborhood. As always, this FREE event takes place the first full weekend in October. Over the years, it has grown to be one of Richmond's favorite annual events and the Mid-Atlantic's largest street festivals. This homecoming celebration invites people to visit historic Jackson Ward and reminisce about the days when 2nd Street was the heart and soul of Richmond's African-American community and was known as “the Harlem of the South.” Today, Jackson Ward continues to be a thriving Richmond neighborhood and community, and the 2nd Street Festival is an annual celebration and homecoming.
