Weekend Events!

Alright folks, put on your socializing pants 'cause this weekend is chock full of fun events!

Kick off your weekend right with a healthy dose of First Fridays! For our especially thirsty readers, Gallery5 will be hosting AugustFest: A Taste of Virginia Micro Brews starting at 7 pm. Available at the event will be a showing of craft beers from Virginia breweries including Legend Brewing Co., Starr Hill, Roanoke Railhouse Brewery and more! While you sip and socialize, special performances will be provided by Birds and Arrows, Brett Harris and Skylar Gudasz and the Ugly Girls. The event is 21+ only and free for entry, however tastings will range from $1 to $3 each.

Also as a part of First Fridays, join local architecture firm BCWH as they celebrate their 25th birthday at Studio 8! On display will be a number of their most influential projects as well as selected artwork from their talented staff. Doors open to the public at 7:30 pm.

On Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, the 28th Annual Carytown Watermelon Festival will be taking place! Join over 100,000 other Richmonders as you meander through the crowds listening to a variety of local music acts while loading up on tasty snacks! Head on over to RVA News for a comprehensive guide on everything you need to know about this year's Watermelon Festival.

Reminder! Coming up quick on our radar is Best Friends Day, so mark your calendars now for August 18 to 21 to partake in a most epic musical lineup!
