Back for another year…food, fun and more in the Depot District.
Break out your Lederhosen and brush up on your German. The 3rd Annual Oktoberfest is Saturday in Richmond’s Historic Depot District. It’s an all-day event from 10 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. No matter what your heritage, the whole family can celebrate the coming of Oktober with: a street fair, tricycle races, live music on several stages, Talent Show in the Depot, German food, a strudel cook off and much more. Proceeds will go to benefit Girls Inc. For more information on Oktoberfest visit depotfestival.com.
Don’t miss the party. No admission fee. Come visit all the new shops that have opened since last Fall: Roscoe’s, Two Sisters, Good Life and more! All shops will be open for shopping and just stopping by to say “welcome to the Depot District.” We’ll see you there!

This new musical, cleverly and comically, pays tribute to the lavish Ziegfeld Follies-style musicals of the 1920’s. The creative and entertaining music, lyrics, dance numbers and show-within-a-show format earned Tony Awards during its successful Broadway run in 2006. We’re sure our RCT audiences will be smiling and toe-tapping with this production.
Directed by Michelle Avery and assisted by Dwan Doherty with music direction by Sandi Cox and choreography by Regina Branagin.

If you haven’t been inside the Firehouse BBQ & Blues yet, but you’ve heard about “the” mural…here is a sneak preview. The mural was painted by the well known artist, Pamela Bliss, who has been director of the Murals Project in Wayne County. She also painted the Single G mural in Cambridge City as well as many others in Wayne County. This mural is located behind the stage where live music is played every weekend, and depicts the old fire wagon and horses racing to put out a fire. The Firehouse BBQ & Blues is actually housed in what was the first firehouse in the area and has been remodeled with much of its historic value preserved, by two firefighters who took on this project over two years ago. It is a must -see destination!
