POSTPONED: South of the James Big Tent Festival

South of the James Big Tent Festival

Governor Northam’s Executive Order of March 30th, by extending the Temporary Stay-At-Home Order due to COVID-19 through Wednesday June 10th, would prevent the South of the James Big Tent Festival featuring the Richmond Symphony from happening on Saturday June 6.  Appreciating and sharing the concern for the well-being of everyone involved in this crisis, we will monitor the situation as it evolves in the coming weeks, and follow the directions of our Governor and Mayor. We will confirm or amend the Festival date as soon we can. Please stay tuned: the health and safety of our community is our top priority, and we appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time.
