Fill up on French food this Saturday, April 20, at the 5th annual RVA French Food Festival -

Sponsored once again by Bon Secours Virginia Health System and the Page Auto Group and benefitting Little Sisters of the Poor in Richmond, the RVA French Food Festival is Richmond’s community-wide event featuring all things FRENCH. Where else can you savor delicious French foods from the different regions in France while sipping French wine and beer, take in live jazz music, shop a Parisian marketplace full of vendors, and enjoy games and entertainment for the kids, all amidst one of the most beautiful properties in Richmond? Come out for lunch, come for dinner, or just come for dessert! Can’t decide which French wine to choose? This is no problem with wine tastings in the new wine garden and also new this year, “Chef Paul’s Picks,” hand selected wines coming highly recommended by Chef Paul himself. The festival will go from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and don’t forget: it is benefitting a great cause right here in the River City. So bring your friends, bring your family, and get ready to step into a slice of France, right here in your own hometown!

The French Food Festival will be held at 1503 Michaels Road from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is free, but a suggested $2 donation to help defray event costs would be most gratefully appreciated. Free parking is conveniently located in the Forest Office Park lots next door.
