The Richmond Folk Festival

Bringing together a world of musical experiences (And not charging for it)

In a time when major music festival tickets cost hundreds of dollars, here’s an amazing thing: the Richmond Folk Festival is an absolutely world-class event, with hundreds of musicians from all over the world. They play on stages across Brown’s Island and Tredegar Ironworks, right by the river. And. It’s. Free. Yep. No admission, although the bucket brigade would appreciate a donation. About 200,000 people check it out every year. You should too. Check their website for this year’s lineup.
