2nd Street Festival | Celebrating Historic Jackson Ward

The 2019 2nd Street Festival returns to historic Jackson Ward October 5 – 6!

Celebrate and reminisce about the days when 2nd Street was the heart and soul of Richmond’s African American community.

Did you know Jackson Ward was known as ‘the Harlem of the South’?

The 2nd Street Festival features four stages of live entertainment along with a Kidz Zone, popular food vendors, a marketplace and Artists Row to shop, the Richmond Metropolitan Antique Car Club, and walking tours given by Historic Jackson Ward Association.

This year the festival features Saturday’s headliner EU (Experience Unlimited) and a Sunday performance by Richmond’s finest, Legacy Band.

The Festival is proud to celebrate artist and native Richmonder, Sone-Seeré Burrell, the first female artist commissioned for the 2nd Street Festival’s original poster art. Her work will be unveiled on Sept. 28, and will be sold during the 2019 festival.

Be sure to catch the many other great artists showcased over the two-day event.
