The Richmond Folk Festival – a Virtual Celebration is This Weekend!

The Richmond Folk Festival will celebrate its 16th anniversary the weekend of October 9-11 with a “virtual” event that will bring together the community through a special television program on VPM PBS Plus Channel 57.1, radio broadcasts on VPM Music (107.3 FM & 93.1 FM), and online streaming on the festival website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel. The virtual celebration will feature new musical performances that are exclusive to this festival, highlights of favorite artists from past festivals, cooking demonstrations, a riverfront art installation, fun family activities, and so much more! The show will go on—a virtual event celebrating the roots, richness, and variety of American culture.
