NBC12 VIEWPOINT: The Richmond Folk Festival 2016

By: Kym Grinnage email

Hello Richmond Folk Festival fans! Yes, it is that time of year again when Richmond plays host to one of the best festivals in the country: The Richmond Folk Festival. This Friday through Sunday there is only one place to be, and that's in Richmond at the Folk Festival.

It looks like we will dodge the brunt of Hurricane Matthew, so please remember that the Folk Festival goes on, rain or shine. And believe me, even if it is raining, you want to attend.

Keep in mind that there are six large, tented stages in the event of rain, so there is much fun and dancing to be had. As usual, I will be there rain or shine.

So what should you expect? The best variety of music you will ever experience in one fabulous weekend. The best crafts to satisfy the craftsman in all of us. And since this will be my cheat weekend, I will be eating international foods from around the world right here in one place. Oh, and of course funnel cakes!

Remember it's all free, but take the opportunity to make a donation on-line or in person when you see someone from the bucket brigade.

Stay tuned to NBC12 for the very latest on weather conditions and go to: richmondfolkfestival.org so that you can plan your weekend.
