From the Brookland Park Historic Collective:
While preserving history and tradition, the Brookland Park Boulevard Annual Historic Festival strives to stimulate local economy, entertain, and involve the community and visitors in a fun-filled atmosphere.
What began as a vision to bring people from all over the Northside to the Historic District of Brookland Park Boulevard area to enjoy the beauty and history of our community, July 2014 turned into an event larger than its founding members ever expected–experiencing well over 700 attendees. It continues to grow with each year. Imagine strolling along streets brimming with a sea of smiling faces, glistening in the bright sunshine, stages of pulsing music from every corner, and children dancing, jumping, and squealing in delight as balloons and grills season the cool summer air. This is an event you won’t want to miss!

The North Barton Heights Civic Association will hold its 2021 kick-off meeting via Zoom on Sunday, May 30th, 2021 from 10am to 11:30am. All residents of North Barton Heights are welcome to attend to meet the association leadership, learn about membership in the association, and hear about our plans for 2021, including the hopeful start to a community farmers market.
We will be inviting our local Richmond Police 4th Precinct Sector 411 and 412 lieutenants, city council representatives (Ann-Frances Lambert of the 3rd District and Ellen Robertson of the 6th District), as well as the Richmond City Democratic Committee 3rd Ward representatives to discuss the upcoming June Democratic Primary.
