The Richmond Folk Festival has been an RVA favorite for almost 20 years! It features all genres of music, art and dance that have influenced American music. 3 full days of entertainment from around the world that promises something for everybody. Great opportunities for candids, music performances and street photography! Come and go as you please.
Updates for performers and times will be added to the Richmond Folk Festival website and Richmond Folk Festival Time Capsule group on Facebook.

Many of you may be going to the Folk Festival Friday night but if you are not this is definitely something you shouldn't miss. Very talented dancers and acrobats will be spinning fire! They will do all kinds of great acts with fire that will amaze you! This is a fantastic opportunity to get unique, dramatic and artistic images. It's free, but there will be a bucket for donations. It's from 5-11pm. Things get going at around 7pm. It's in Jackson Ward/Arts District of Richmond. Plan for parking. It's worth going to just to watch too. Come for an hour or for the whole show.
Due to the pandemic and rising cases, we are requiring that you either be vaccinated or sit at a table away from the group. We are all older and being very careful not to get Covid if at all possible. Beginning Feb. 16, tables will be limited to 4 each, 2 per side.
Meet us just outside the back doors of the restaurant. We have an enclosed outdoor space with a propane heater to keep us warm while we stay safe. We are the only ones utilizing this space.
West End Breakfast/Networking is held on Wednesday mornings at Boychik's Deli near Innsbrook, located right next door to Capital Ale. This is a time to connect with other members. Great way to start out your day talking photography! If we finish up early, we could plan head out from there for a shoot. Bring ideas for any photo shoots or meetups you might want to have us add.
This is a great introduction to RPMG for your friends interested in photography. Bring a guest!
Please sign up if you plan to attend so that we can have plenty of space to spread out.
