Visit, Listen to WCVE Public Radio at the Richmond Folk Festival
WCVE Public Radio and WCVE Education are pleased to again be able to participate on-site and over-the-air with the Richmond Folk Festival. WCVE Public Radio and WCVE Education will have tents at the Festival, and WCVE Public Radio will provide live coverage from the Altria Stage throughout the Festival weekend.
Performances include Magic Slim & The Teardrops with Big Time Sarah, Chatham County Line, Pedrito Martinez Group, Redd Volkaert Band with Cindy Cashdollar, Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba and more. The entire list of performances can be found here.
Coming out to the Festival? Stop by and see us! The WCVE Public Radio tent will be located near the 2nd street entrance. Stop by and meet some folks from WCVE Public Radio and the Community Idea Stations, sign up to win one of three HD radios, grab a free sling backpack (while they last) and if you haven’t become a member yet, you can do so on the spot!
Bring your family to the Genworth Family Area on Saturday, October 15 and Sunday, October 16 between noon and 6:00 p.m. and get ready for some fun at the WCVE Education table. The theme is “Around the World,” and there will be lots of children’s activities, including decorating Sesame Workshop Panwapa World fans. We will also be giving away Really, Really Fun Pages booklets and TV programming information.
Catch the Festival over-the-air or online. Can’t make it out to the Richmond Folk Festival or want a bit more on your way to and from the event?
