RVA Arts & Cultural Events

We’re centered around art, and we celebrate it

If the 100+ building-size murals don’t tip you off, our events calendar will – the Richmond region is all about the arts. We’ve got art walks, historic theaters, and a monthly arts block party for First Fridays. A world-class ballet with cool interpretations in motion. Arts in the Park is a huge, free event, with more than 450 artists selling their works (right around Mother’s Day, in case you need a gift.) The RVA Street Art Festival goes big with outdoor canvases, and RVA Makerfest celebrates our creative culture. And of course, every museum and gallery here has its own special exhibitions. See below for more specifics.
