Richmond Greek Festival – May 30 – June 2

Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 30 Malvern Avenue, Richmond, VA

  • Thursday, May 30: 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Friday, May 31: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 1: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 2: 12-6 p.m.

Festival History

One of the major benchmarks for the Cathedral in 1976 was the beginning of its Greek cultural and food festival. First known as the “Richmond Grecian Festival,” this event, more than any other Church activity, raised the visibility of the Cathedral and introduced many Richmonders to Greek food and culture. It also introduced many to the rich spirituality of the Orthodox faith.​

Over the years, the festival concept has been expanded and enhanced. The outdoor area features white tents with food, drink selections and ample seating, as well as a stage with a live band and Greek folk dancers. Inside the Cathedral building are sanctuary tours, a charity information table, a raffle and merchandise table, an agora (international marketplace) and a pastry table with authentic Greek delicacies. Read the full Richmond Greek Festival history.

Juneteenth Flag

Juneteenth celebrates enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching the westernmost Confederate state of Texas. The Proclamation went into effect in 1863, but this news was purposefully withheld from enslaved people until the arrival of Union troops in Galveston Bay, Texas on June 19, 1865. Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day.

First flown in 2000, the Juneteenth flag was designed by Ben Haith, founder of the National Juneteenth Celebration.

Virginia Conference

Pathways to Partnership:
Enhancing Trust through Tribal Consultation

Thursday, September 19, 2024 at Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center

FREE Registration to attend virtually or in person.

Pathways to Partnership:
Enhancing Trust through Tribal Consultation

The 2024 Virginia General Assembly passed HB1157 with bipartisan support: a bill affirming the Commonwealth’s obligation to consult with federally recognized Tribal Nations before granting state permits for projects that may impact tribal cultural, historical, and environmental interests. Governor Glenn Youngkin signed the bill into a law that will take effect July 1, 2024. What does this mean for state and local agencies and the tribes in Virginia? What does it look like when it’s working well? Why is it necessary? These questions, and more, will be addressed through the presentations of speakers – from Virginia Tribes to agencies and other professionals in the field.

Consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), consent is the most appropriate and preferred diplomacy tool between sovereign governments. However, consultation is currently the most commonly used diplomacy tool to proactively protect the inherent sovereign interests and rights of Tribal Nations, so it is imperative that it is meaningful and robust. Director Carroll will open the conference with a discussion on the importance of consultation as part of building strong, respectful, and healthy relationships between governments, including how it can be most effectively used for both federal and state relations.
Kitcki A. Carroll, Executive Director United South and Eastern Tribes, Inc. (USET) and USET Sovereignty Protection Fund  Mr. Carroll serves as the Executive Director for USET and the USET SPF, an inter-tribal organization advocating on behalf of 33 federally recognized Tribal Nations from the Northeastern Woodlands to the Everglades and across the Gulf of Mexico. In his capacity as Executive Director, he works to protect, promote, and advance the inherent sovereign rights and authorities of the organization’s member Tribal Nations and Indian Country overall. Mr. Carroll is a strong justice advocate for all Native American people and actively works to ensure that the United States fulfills its trust and treaty responsibilities and obligations to Indian Country. Mr. Carroll is a citizen of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes. He has held various Executive/Senior management positions in the tribal government and nonprofit sector over the past 20 years and he has served on various workgroups, panels, task forces, boards, and advisory groups.
