As Summer approaches in Richmond, we here at the Urban Farmhouse are delighted to jump into the warmer weather and all that it offers to Richmonders! Our menu will be changing with the season, and soon you’ll be able to order some appetizing dishes that only come around during the warm and sunny months! June in Richmond signals an explosion of wonderful events and festivals, and it is rare a day that goes by without some wonderful celebration of food, culture, nature, or art. With children finishing up school for the year and parents preparing their time off, there’s no better time to soak up all of the wonderful summer activities that our city has to offer!
This month, Urban Farmhouse is proud to host (and be a key sponsor for) the Richmond Road Runner’s Club ‘Thanks Dad 5k’ on Saturday, June 17th! Held at our Midlothian Millworks location, this run is designed to highlight the special relationship between fathers and grandfathers with their children. There will be live music, food and drink samples, and even the option to run with your dog! To register for this event, head over to the Richmond Roadrunner Club calendar and find the RRRC Thanks Dad 5K. https://www.rrrc.org/rva-race-calendar
Elsewhere, on the 2nd of June, Richmond will be hosting its second annual Peace Love RVA Yoga Festival at Maymont Farm from 10 AM to 4 PM. The Yoga fest will feature a day of music, healthy food, and yoga classes led by some of Richmond’s best instructors. Starting on June 8th, The Festival of the River begins. This Brown’s Island-based festival promises three days of music, art, and environment for attendees through live performances, contemporary art, River cleanups, and other family-friendly environmental education activities. Elsewhere around the River City, the Richmond Vegetarian Festival will be held the afternoon of June 23rd at Bryan Park.
