Free for spectators, fee for participants

Dominion Riverrock unites the community through a unique mix of sports, music and fun, set against the backdrop of Richmond’s downtown riverfront. The party begins on Friday with live music, a mud run and an acrobatic freestyle bike competition. Then on Saturday, athletes from around the region square off in high-adrenaline activities both in and around the river — the James River Scramble trail run, mountain biking, kayaking and much more. With additional musical performances, spectator water sports like the highflying Ultimate Air Dogs, food, exhibits and more, Dominion Riverrock is Richmond’s premier river event.

Produced by Venture Richmond Events, LLC, a subsidiary of Venture Richmond, and in partnership with Sports Backers.

Volunteer at Dominion Riverrock

Dominion Riverrock is the nation’s premier outdoor sports and music festival, and what better way to be a part of the action than volunteering? If you would like to volunteer at Dominion Riverrock, we can use your help!

The role you play at Dominion Riverrock is up to you, and with the variety of activities, there is something for everyone. Our volunteers help keep the participants hydrated, direct and spot as course marshals and obstacle aid assistants, get muddy at the finish line, be part of the Bucket Brigade Team’s “Riverrock Stars” donation efforts and even join the Green Team to help with the event’s recycling efforts.

And the best part is, when you are finished with your volunteer shift, you can stick around to take in some great tunes, watch the Ultimate Air Dogs do amazing jumps, and see the slackline, bouldering, SUP, kayak and freestyle bike folks put on an awesome show!
