More than 70 vendors help bring health and fitness fair to the streets of Richmond

Saturday, June 22 marks the inaugural RVA Streets Alive! festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Sports Backers, the City of Richmond and the Mayor’s Healthy Richmond Campaign, and the Richmond City Health District have partnered to create this open streets festival, which will close a 2.5-mile loop connecting the Manchester and 14th Street bridges, to automobile traffic to allow residents and visitors to use these streets to be active through running, walking, biking, and many other physical activities.

To help celebrate Richmond’s efforts to become a more active region, Senator Mark Warner and Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones will be participating in a walking tour of the course beginning at 11:30 a.m., making many stops along the way to participate in select vendor activities.

“I’m very much looking forward to attending Richmond’s first Streets Alive! festival,” says Senator Warner. “I know this event will grow year after year as an exciting way to introduce Virginians to fitness opportunities that will help them live longer, healthier lives and be active in their communities.”

“An active lifestyle is vitally important to the overall health of our city,” says Major Jones. “I welcome this outdoor health fair as the beginning of a unique Richmond tradition celebrating health and well being.”

More than 70 vendors will be on-site offering health and fitness information and interactive demonstrations. Below is a full schedule of planned events and activities:
