Richmond Symphony’s free Big Tent concert is this weekend
The Richmond Symphony’s Big Tent music and art event is Saturday in Jackson Ward at Abner Clay Park.
What's happening: The free outdoor concert will feature classical music from significant historic and contemporary Black composers and live, onstage painting demonstrations.
- Plus, the event is partnering with the nearby Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia for the first time, which will host family-friendly activities leading up to the concert.
Details: Saturday at 7pm. The rain date is Sunday at the same time. Admission is free, and the event is family and pet-friendly.
What else to do this weekend: Check out a rodeo at Powhatan Bullnanza, complete with bull riding competitions, bull lassoing and cowgirl barrel racing.
- There will also be a mechanical bull, which we imagine will make for some super Instagrammable moments.
- Saturday. Gates at 5pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm at Rocky Oak Farm in Powhatan. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Kids 5 and under are free.
