What better way to celebrate the Richmond riverfront than at the nation’s largest outdoor sports and music festival?! Dominion Riverrock, organized by Sports Backers and Venture Richmond Events LLC, puts the James River and downtown Richmond on display. From music to mud pits, bikes to beer, SUPs to pups, and climbing to kayaks, it’s uniquely RVA! Rock the day and night away, watch professional athletes thrill the crowd, and maybe even get a little dirty yourself. This isn’t your typical festival, but we’re not your typical town!
