Events in Richmond This Week: September 10 – September 16, 2018

Fall Events Cover Now that kids are officially back to school, we have to face the facts…summer is over. And while we might worry about missing the long lazy days of summer, we’ve got plenty to look forward to because fall is just around the corner! For some, fall means football, pumpkin spice, and chunky sweaters, but for us, it means fall festival season.

There’s no shortage of fall festival options in the Richmond area, so to help you find the best ones for you and your family, we’ve put together our latest and greatest Guide to Fall Festivals in Richmond and Beyond. From carnivals for the kids to harvest festivals for the whole family, there’s something for everyone.

In the meantime, don’t miss all that’s happening this week in Richmond! We’ve highlighted some of our favorite events below, but for the full rundown of everything that’s happening this week, be sure to visit our event calendar for even more family events and fun.
