Brown’s Island Free for spectators, fee for participants
Dominion Riverrock unites the community through a unique mix of sports, music and fun, set against the backdrop of Richmond’s downtown riverfront. The party begins on Friday with live music, a mud run and an acrobatic freestyle bike competition. Then on Saturday, athletes from around the region square off in high-adrenaline activities both in and around the river — the James River Scramble trail run, mountain biking, kayaking and much more. With additional musical performances, spectator water sports like the highflying Ultimate Air Dogs, food, exhibits and more, Dominion Riverrock is Richmond’s premier river event.
