We are sure that you have noticed that summertime in Downtown Richmond and in communities across the globe look very different this year. Since the shelter in place health order went into effect in mid-March, Richmond Main Street has been working tirelessly to provide support to businesses and residents. We have also been monitoring the situation closely and taking all prevention guidance seriously. In order to ensure the health and safety of everyone who participates in our Celebrate Downtown events — guests, residents, visitors, performers, vendors, businesses, volunteers, and staff — we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person summer events

As we continue to maintain our Community Resource Directory, support our local businesses survive and build resilience, ensure a complete count for Census 2020, and keep our Neighborhood Ambassador program running, we are also actively exploring virtual and self-guided events. Some ideas that we are currently working on are:

  • Virtual Spirit & Soul Festival in September
  • Art In Windows exhibition with works of this time
  • Visit & Shop Local Campaigns
  • Beautification Activities 

We need your help to bring these events to life!

We thank you for everything that you do to make Richmond the city of Pride and Purpose. Please continue to stay safe, shop local, and stay engaged.

In service,

Vivian Wong, Executive Director

Richmond Main Street Board of Directors
