It’s official: summer is over and autumn is here! With Saturday’s Spirit & Soul Festival, another successful and record-breaking summer event season is now in the record books.
We had a blast at Spirit & Soul Festival! The stage was hot with Soul and Motown favorites that brought music lovers of all ages to the dance floor. This year’s event was the largest to date and broke records in just about every way: 51 superhero volunteers, 41 vendors, 8 performances on the 12th Street Stage, 2 grand marshals, and 1 additional full block of fun—all enjoyed by 2200+ residents and community members.
In case you missed it, or if you want to relive the festivities, check out these awesome videos by Supervisor John Gioia’s office and Mark Lampkin. Stay tuned for our official photo album and video!
We offer massive thanks and gratitude to all our volunteers, vendors, and sponsors for making this event possible: Zellerbach Family Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, Mechanics Bank, San Francisco Bay Ferry, Cooperative Center Federal Credit Union, LifeLong Medical Care, AC Transit, Republic Services, Sims Metal Management, Chevron Richmond, Richmond Build, SparkPoint Contra Costa, East Brother Beer Company, The Living Apothecary, Your Way Pizza, and City of Richmond.
