Dominion Riverrock is the East Coast’s premier outdoor lifestyle festival: bringing athletes, spectators, musicians, and even dogs to Brown’s Island for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmond’s urban riverfront. The festival features a variety of outdoor sports including trail running, kayaking, biking, bouldering, slacklining, stand up paddleboarding, and dog jumping. The event was designed to promote Richmond’s unique riverfront, downtown trails and whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts. dominionriverrock.com
We are delighted to announce that once again we will be attending Dominion RiverRock, the greatest outdoor lifestyle festival in the Southeast and quite possibly in the world! After attending for our first time last year, we wouldn’t miss it for anything — the Southern hospitality of Richmond, VA, the contagious enthusiasm on Brown’s Island, and the incredible artist line-up get better and better each year!
Not only does Dominion RiverRock bring a greater appreciation for outdoor sports to the region of Richmond, VA but it also showcases an incredible music lineup with a variety of talented artists from a variety of musical genres. Even better, this is a fantastic event for the whole community — all of this weekend’s concerts are free and open to the public. Our friends The Infamous Stringdusters will be rockin’ the RiverRock and we can’t wait to see them live! See the full lineup here.
