Richmond Beach Celebration

Friday though Sunday, May 11-13

Four great events = one spectacular weekend in Richmond Beach

Richmond Beach is a vibrant, thriving neighborhood that enjoys a rich history, awesome views, amenities such as parks and a library within walking distance, excellent schools, good restaurants, retail stores, low crime rate, involved residents and more. The Richmond Beach Celebration features four distinctly different events, which allow guests to enjoy the beauty and charm of our neighborhood in one spectacular weekend. This year’s festivities promise to provide activities and entertainment for all ages and interests. Join your friends and neighbors for a good time!

  1. Enjoy local music and food at the Strawberry Festival!
  2. Delight in–and perhaps purchase--the handcrafted items including jewelry, textiles, ceramics, photography and original art at the Arts and Crafts Sale!
  3. Check out cars of yesteryear at the Car Show!
  4. Explore plants in the unique, naturalistic Kruckeberg Botanic Garden!

Due to limited parking at the event sites, off-site parking and shuttle service to all four events will be provided on Saturday, May 12, at Richmond Beach Congregational Church located at 1512 NW 195th. Visitors are encouraged to use the shuttle to reduce impact on the neighborhood. Local residents are encouraged to walk or carpool, if possible.
