East End Festival benefits RPS' cultural arts programs

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Everyone is welcome at the East End Festival!

Happening Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9th, the RVA East End Festival celebrates the community’s commitment to support music and cultural arts for the youth in Richmond’s East End public schools.

The event is free, but any donations will be given directly to support cultural arts programs in East End schools. Funds raised from previous East End Festivals has gone to things like a new dance floor at Armstrong High School, and instruments in schools. 

The festival is happening at Chimborazo Park Saturday, June 8 from noon until 8:30 p.m.

The event kicks off on Saturday with music and performances by kids who go to East End schools, and have benefited from some resources that have been made available to them as a result of previous East End Festivals.

Sunday’s festivities have moved indoors to Martin Luther King Middle School on 1000 Mosby Street.

There will be free yoga at noon and music starting at 1 p.m. The Richmond Symphony performance has been moved to Sunday and will close the festival./=
