I know the photo is a little tough to read; bookmark this post and I’ll get the lineup transcribed this week 🙂 Wanted to get the word out since the Festival’s kicking off this weekend
More information about Dogwood Dell & the festival:
Dogwood Dell is a 2,400 seat amphitheatre owned and operated by the Department of Parks, Recreation & Community Facilities and located in Byrd Park. Since 1956, it has been home to the Festival of Arts; a summer long celebration of the arts featuring art exhibits, concerts, dance and theatre. In addition to these events, the Festival of Arts also incorporates a children’s series with performances at our Ha’ Penny stage. For more information, call (804)646-1437 or call the Dell hotline at (804)646-DELL.
Festival of Arts
With its eclectic mix of old and new, the Festival of Arts has become one of Richmond’s cultural treasures. Through our programming, the Festival of Arts strives to bring the Richmond community some of the most innovative and avant-garde performers, while also respecting the value and importance of traditional and classical works.
Throughout June, July, and August, a variety of shows can be enjoyed at the “Dell” including classical music and dance; drama, comedy, and musical theatre; reggae, pop, swing, rhythm and blues, rock, jazz and contemporary music concerts. The Festival of Arts is flavored for every taste. Come early for a seat in the amphitheatre or bring a blanket to sit in the surrounding park.
Although the dance concerts and programs presented at Dogwood Dell are normally purchased packaged shows for which we provide technical assistance, our three theatre productions are produced fully in-house. While many of our theatre productions are Richmond premieres, we also stage contemporary favorites. These productions continually prove to be some of Richmond’s favorites and have even won awards.
The Ha’Penny Stage behind the Carillon is a center for children’s theatre and entertainment on Sunday afternoons during the Festival of Arts. Programs include music, theatre, juggling, story-telling and more.
The Dogwood Dell does not cancel performances until show time (unless drastic weather conditions exist). Patrons can listen to WRVA for Dell cancellations. Call (804)646-DELL, during the summer for schedule updates.
