Come out and celebrate 407 years of the concept of Richmond.
Hopefully you’ve seen these flyers around town, advertising the yearly celebration of “the concept of Richmond”:
Richmond Day kicks off tomorrow at noon in Church Hill’s Libby Hill Park and lasts until 6:00 PM. There will be food provided by Send-A-Chef catering, a pep rally, disc golf, a chance to learn about the future of the American Civil War Museum, a “dress as your favorite Richmonder” costume contest, and many other activities.
From the Richmond Day website:
“On May 24, 1607, ten days after landing at Jamestown, an expedition led by Christopher Newport sailed up the James River, but was met by the falls of the James, preventing further passage. As they surveyed the land around the falls, the English settlers immediately saw significant potential for this place…Richmond Day celebrates that on that day, the concept of the Community of Richmond was born.”
For more information, including the objectives of the celebration and the new international focus, check out the flyer below:
