Hammers & Ales is RVA's only Party with a Purpose. This is our time to celebrate Richmond’s parks, public places, and the people that make them thrive. Our main mission is to provide tools, equipment, and expertise to empower the work of community-based organizations. Hammers & Ales is a celebration of that work.
This all-day event features a half-day community and corporate volunteer experience where participants use ToolBank materials, tools, and instructions to hand-build outdoor furniture and placemaking features that we donate to dozens of local community groups in need. This year, teams will choose from hand-building a park bench, picnic table, or a dog house. The outdoor furniture and placemaking features will be donated to groups like Ring Dog Rescue & Friends of James River Park.
Throughout the day, Brown’s Island will transform into a lively, family-friendly open-air festival with tool-themed games & activities, local beer & n/a beverages, and food trucks, with live music from Bio Ritmo.
