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 Richmond. Please consider a donation to benefit the James River Park System & Richmond Riverfront. Your gift will help maintain, improve & enhance the James River Park System trails & riverfront. This nationally acclaimed trail system would not be what it is today without the hard work of countless volunteers throughout the year & it is donations like yours that make this work possible. In 2021 Dominion Energy Riverrock donations were able to support not only general trail maintenance through RVA More’s tireless efforts but also specifically made possible the replacement of two ramps throughout the trails in the James River Park System – one in Powhite Park and on at Huguenot Flatwater. Through the pandemic the James River Park System and riverfront has seen record use so donations to maintain and improve this critical RVA asset are as important as ever.
