Healthy eating & active living in Downtown Richmond

Healthy Village Festival

is a fun annual summer event all about health and wellness. This free community event takes place in the Community Green Space park located at the corner of Harbour Way and Macdonald Avenue. Richmond Main Street collaborates with local community groups and nonprofits, caterers, and businesses to provide delicious healthy food samples, recipes, cookbooks, fresh produce giveaways, educational and fun activities for kids, and access to information about living a healthier lifestyle.

I am so impressed. There is a wealth of information available. New foods to sample.”

Es muy bueno para saber que comer y hacer ejercicio para estar mejor y saludable.”
