The first RVA East End Festival was held in 2016, bringing the Richmond community together for an annual celebration of music and the arts. The event was halted in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. Since 2016, the Festival has raised over $400,000 to support music, visual art and performing arts programs at Richmond Public Schools in the East End community of Richmond. The Festival features musical performances by East End students and also by local professional talent including members of the Richmond Symphony.
