RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Ready for another summer-long celebration of the arts in one of the most creative cities in the country?

Dogwood Dell has been home to the Festival of Arts since 1956 and this year is destined to be a memorable one with art exhibits, concerts, dance and theatre performances.

Toting an “eclectic mix of old and new,” the Festival of Arts has cemented itself as a Richmond staple throughout June, July and August.

You can head down to the Dell, bring a blanket or chair to relax in the amphitheater and enjoy the performances. You can find more information about the festival on the City of Richmond’s website.
