What's Booming: Cars & Corks & ¿Que Pasa?

So much culture, so little time

The idea of Richmond’s annual ¿Que Pasa? Festival is to connect the Latinx community with the rest of our city, bridging gaps and connecting communities. Though it’s completely virtual this year, the festival will last for an entire month – and still manages to bring all of the cultural offerings they always do. Find entertainment, food, local artisans, and so much more … you might even forget it’s virtual. Through Oct. 15.

Pandemic or not, Richmond would never let anything happen to its legendary Monument Avenue 10k. It just looks a liiiittle bit different this year. Friday, Sept. 25 through Sunday, Sept. 27.

Take a walk, support local artists, hit up a food truck – then repeat. Southside Stroll and Artwalk, Saturday, Sept. 26 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. See poster for location details.

For car aficionados, bring your car-curious brain to Maymont’s Cars & Corks for a slew of classic automobiles right at your fingertips. Not so into cars? Maybe you’re into live music. Or delicious beverages and food trucks. Or crisp fall weather… Saturday, Sept. 26 from 1-6 p.m. at Maymont. Stick around for An Evening with Cars & Corks from 4-7 p.m.

Patrick Henry is still demanding Liberty or Death, even if it is over Zoom. Sunday, Sept. 27 from 1-2 p.m.
