End of Summer in Richmond

August Means Catching the Last Gasp of RVA Summer

Here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Head to RVA Big Market Saturdays at Bryan Park from 8-1 and get allll the great produce. Make something you’ve never made, or just enjoy something simple like a tomato sandwich, before those Hanovers are gone!
  2. SuzySno is moving from Jackson Ward to the old Sweet 95 spot on Arthur Ashe Blvd. Opens in August, so go get you some!
  3. What says RVA as much as beer, cider, and music?? Head to Brown’s Island on August 13th for the JamPacked Craft Beer and Music Festival. 
  4. Cool down with the family and learn about sharks (!) at the Science Museum of Virginia’s Predator or Prey 
  5. Carytown Watermelon Festival is back (40 years!) on August 14, in Carytown, of course.
  6. Are you running out of things to do with the kids and it’s just. too. hot? The Byrd has great family movies running all month. Click HERE for their schedule!
  7. Sunflowers and Sunsets? Yes please! Take a short ride to Burnside Farms and wander as the sun sets (and it’s a little cooler, maybe) and enjoy their sunflower bounty. Tickets required. More info HERE
