Richmond Folk Festival in the Schools

Through the generous support of its sponsors and our partner JAMinc, who provides transportation, audio support and local on-site coordination, the Richmond Folk Festival fill Richmond area schools auditoriums and classrooms with performances and presentations of deeply-rooted cultural expressions.

For the last few years, an artist has also performed at the Richmond City Justice Center. This year, Cora Harvey Armstrong will bring her story and gospel music to the inmates there.
