Events in Richmond This Week: August 27 – September 2, 2018

Fall Events Cover With school starting back just after Labor Day, the coming week marks the last official days of summer for many Richmond area families. And that means that most of us are looking for ways to get back into a school year state of mind. To get you started this week, we’ve put together some ways to set yourself up for success in the coming school year. First, after a long, and probably expensive summer, we’ve created a valuable Grocery Savings Guide to help with back-to-school breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. And secondly, we have 9 Ways To Establish A Healthy Routine Before The School Year Starts. Both of these guides offer great ways to make the most of your time and money in the last week of summer.

However, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t go out with a bang! Which brings us to this week’s events. The Richmond area is full of family-friendly activities in the coming week that will ensure your whole family gets a chance to enjoy what’s left of summer. Check out our highlighted favorites below, then be sure to visit our full event calendar for even more family events and fun.
