Small Business Saturday was a lot of…fun! Check out our socially distanced #ShopSmall journey with stops at Gratitude Afrocentric Gift StoreLeftside PrintingSan Francisco PizzaEl Garage, and Rich City Rides Bike Skate Coop Shop. Despite the challenges and hardships of this pandemic, we are so impressed by the ingenuity and tenacity of our Downtown businesses. And we are grateful to our #ShopLocal super fans who support our businesses every day of the year. Remember to keep it up and show your love for our small businesses in other ways too!

Since it’s not safe to gather and have folks come to Santa, we are bringing Santa and the Downtown Holiday Festival experience to you!

Santa’s helpers are making special deliveries to Richmond households. Register to receive goodie bags, books, family resources, and more.

Virtual Downtown Holiday Festival
Wednesday, December 16, 6pm-7:30pm

Grab some hot cocoa and tune in for an evening of yuletide cheer featuring Storytime with Santa and A Richmond Nutcracker.

Calling All Santa Helpers! We are looking for 15 volunteers to make the special deliveries. Each volunteer will pick-up a delivery kit on December 11 and make deliveries to about 10 households on December 12.
Will you help us make the holidays bright for 300 Richmond kids?
