Throughout the weekend, Dominion Energy Riverrock will partner with local nonprofits to focus on grassroots initiatives for outdoor access and sustainability.

Dominion Energy Riverrock typically features three full days of live bands taking the stage on Brown’s Island, however that will not be the case this year. Instead, impromptu musical performances will pop up in and around the James River Park System. Park goers will have a chance to catch a variety of performances, ranging from solo acoustic acts to multi-piece bands, to accompany their outdoor experiences during the weekend.
