Dominion Energy Riverrock, organized by Richmond non-profits Sports Backers & Venture Richmond, began in 2009 & is now the nation's premier outdoor sports & lifestyle festival, bringing athletes, spectators, musicians, & even dogs to Brown’s Island & Historic Tredegar for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmond’s urban riverfront. The festival was designed to promote Richmond’s unique riverfront, downtown trails & whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts. As a result of the creation of Dominion Riverrock, there is a stronger appreciation for the value of outdoor recreation throughout the entire Richmond region.

Help Us Maintain Our World Class Trail System

The James River Park System & the Richmond Riverfront is an extremely important asset to RVA. Please consider a donation to benefit the James River Park System & riverfront. Your gift will help maintain, improve, & enhance the JRPS trails & riverfront. This nationally acclaimed trail system would not be what it is today without the hard work of countless volunteers & it is donations like yours that make this work possible. In the past donations were able to support not only general trail maintenance through RVA More’s tireless efforts but also very specific infrastructure & equipment improvements like a donation to the universal access ramp at Huguenot Flatwater, new trail ramps, & in 2022, the replacement of all bike pumps at the bike repair stations around the Park System. The James River Park System & riverfront continues to see heavy use so donations to maintain & make improvements are important to the overall sustainability.
