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. For more information, visit the Festival’s
