Get ready for another great street party in Richmond on Sept. 13 for the 6th annual Spirit & Soul Festival & Fundraiser.
The festival will be held on Macdonald Avenue between 13th Street and Harbour Way from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The event is meant to promote and boost efforts to revitalize downtown Richmond and will include a variety of live entertainment, food, activities for children and calorie-burning Zumba dancing.
This year’s festival has been extended to 217 Harbour Way, where Catholic Charities of the East Bay West County Service Center recently opened in a newly renovated building.
Richmond Main Street Initiative (RMSI), the nonprofit that is spearheading a City Council-approved effort to revitalize downtown, has been holding regular community events downtown.
“Spirit & Soul is an amazing celebration of our community and highlights the strides we’re making in the revitalization of historic downtown Richmond,” said Amanda Elliott, executive director of RMSI.
The festival is sponsored by Chevron, City of Richmond, Catholic Charities of the East Bay, Sims Metal Management and Richmond Sanitary Services.
