Situated between the rapids and the James River and the Kanawha Canal, it is Richmond’s most sought-after outdoor venue. The expansive green of the great lawn of Brown’s Island stretches before you. The venue is at the heart of many yearly events that draw more than a million visitors each year. Framed by the magnificent James, the downtown skyline and the Tredegar Museum, Brown’s Island is an oasis with continuous activity during the warm months.
This is the site of the RVA Reggae Jerk Fest. This festival is fast becoming a Richmond landmark and a favorite summer pass time for locals and visitors alike. It brings a unique flavor to the city in celebration of the diverse culture that Richmond has become. Come early. Bring your blanket and lawn chair and enjoy an afternoon of Caribbean vibes at the RVA Reggae Jerk Fest.
