With its eclectic mix of old and new, the Festival of Arts has become one of Richmond’s cultural treasures. Through Recreation and Parks programming, the Festival of Arts strives to bring the Richmond community some of the most innovative and avant-garde performers, while also respecting the value and importance of traditional and classical works.
Throughout June, July, and August, a variety of shows can be enjoyed at the “Dell” including classical music and dance; drama, comedy, and musical theatre; reggae, pop, swing, rhythm and blues, rock, jazz and contemporary music concerts. The Festival of Arts is flavored for every taste. Come early for a seat in the amphitheatre or bring a blanket to sit in the surrounding park.
Richmond Recreation and Parks also stage contemporary favorites. These productions continually prove to be some of Richmond’s favorites and have even won awards.
