Due to the unpredictable and ongoing threat posed by the spread of COVID-19, and in accordance with the government officials’ phased approach to group gatherings, the 2020 Richmond Folk Festival has been canceled.


However, the organizers do not plan to let the festival weekend, October 9–11, 2020, go unnoticed and are working now with their sponsors and partners to determine the most meaningful and safe way to bring the community together, even if only virtually. The organizers invite you to stay tuned for more announcements regarding virtual celebrations for The Richmond Folk Festival that showcase favorite past performances, new live performances, online children’s activities, a virtual marketplace, demonstrations, giveaways, and much more.


To see full press release and updates about alternative festival plans, see The Richmond Folk Festival.
