Everyone In Virginia Must Attend These 7 Epic River Festivals

If there’s one thing that’s true about Virginians, it’s how much we love time on the “rivah.” So why not turn this love into day-long festivals? The whole concept of a river festival lends itself to so many possibilities: music, food, water activities, and most importantly, appreciation for the great outdoors. Whether you’re looking for an excuse to kick back by some of Virginia’s most beautiful rivers, or engage in some fun-filled water sports, these are the festivals for you. And the best news of all? Most of these are free!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
