Taste the best of RVA and support the Richmond Folk Festival

To kick off The Richmond Folk Festival, join us on Tuesday, October 7th from 6pm-9pm, for FOLK FEAST, a tasting experience to benefit the Richmond Folk Festival. The brightest stars of Richmond's restaurant community will gather at Upper Tredegar to support the Folk Festival by presenting their signature dishes, and showcasing Richmond's rich and diverse dining scene. This is an exclusive chance to experience the best eats our city has to offer, meet the chefs shaping our culinary landscape and support Virginia's largest, most culturally dynamic festival, all under one tent!
