2nd Street Festival October 3-4, 2015

Second Street Festival Saturday: 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday: Noon to 6 p.m.

The hands of time are turned back to when 2nd Street was the heart and soul of Richmond’s African-American community. Each year thousands of people come to Richmond’s historic Jackson Ward to hear live music on four stages, enjoy children’s activities, taste delicious food, shop in the marketplace, dance in the streets and renew old friendships. Free admission.

This year, the Festival features headliner Midnight Star on Saturday, and on Sunday, premier Virginia gospel artists Larry Bland and the Volunteer Choir Featuring “Promise” will perform, before Johnny Houston and the Legends close out the festival.
