What's Booming: Concerts & Concerts & Concerts & Flowers

By Rachel Marsh | June 3rd, 2021

The sounds and smells of summer are coming...

Flowers on violin

Flowers After 5

Thursday, June 3 from 4-9 p.m. at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

Unwind from the week with friends, food, live music, and, of course – flowers. Where better to stop and smell the Flowers After 5 than Richmond’s favorite botanical garden?

Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k

Thursday, June 3 through Sunday, June 6 at Byrd Park or Dorey Park

The iconic Richmond event is back this year to unite runners and non-runners alike (hey, we all know it’s more about tradition anyway). Throughout its four-day span, hit the pavement on one of the two race locations – featuring a start and finish line, chip-timers, mile markers, and directional arrows. Or – run it on the course of your choice! It may look a little different this year, but there’s still no wrong way to Monument 10k.

Ashland Bike Fest

Friday, June 4 through Sunday, June 6 in downtown Ashland

A little bit of faith, a little bit of motorcycles, a whole lot of community. Ashland Bike Fest is bringing together people from all over for history, activities, attractions, music, and an unrivaled experience.

Pocahontas Premieres: The Richmond Symphony

Saturday, June 5 at 8 p.m. at Pocahontas State Park

Sunny spring skies and sweet symphonic strings … Yes. Please.

The Oasis: A High Noon Summer Concert Series

Every Wednesday from noon-1 p.m. at The Valentine Garden

This summer, The Valentine wants to help break up your week with a little music, a little fresh air, and a little local support. Their Wednesday concert series features a diversity of musicians every week, nestled among friendly neighbors and their verdant garden. It’s going to be a great summer.
