Love Your Block and Taste Of Brookland Park Festival
April 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
This fun-filled day begins with a large flea market hosted by Richmond Community HighSchool from 8am – noon. If you have a nonprofit or you are a community member who would like to join the flea market and sell your own items, contact Alison Owens email@example.com.
The Love Your Block event from 10am – 2pm includes a volunteer block clean up and resource tables like Dominion Energy, Richmond Grows Gardens, Department of Public Utilities, the Richmond Ambulance Authority, Richmond Rocks! and many more! This event will not only provide resources for residents to enable them to “love” their block, it will also serve as an event to recognize the seven 2019 Love Your Block RVA mini-grant winners. This will be a family-friendly event and will have a graffiti station as well as a station to paint rocks to hide with RVA Rocks!
Finally, from 12pm – 5pm, the Taste of Brookland Park Festival invites visitors and residents to tour Richmond’s Northside residential and commercial corridor that dates back to the 1920s. Stroll along Brookland Park Boulevard between Fendall and North avenues to taste food from restaurants along the route and enjoy sidewalk displays and wares from our local shops. The 2nd annual Taste of Brookland Park will feature live music, food trucks, and restaurant samplings.
