Breit Cantor Grana Buckner Sponsors RVA RIMBY Festival
Courtney Sweasy—August 6, 2019
Hosted by Beyond Boundaries, this event brings together Richmond-based vendors to offer fun things residents and visitors alike can do locally.
Here is a list of festival events provided by local vendors:
- Aw Shucks BBQ competition fundraiser
- Live music provided by East of Blue Ride
- Outdoor gear and fly-casting demonstrations
- Electric bike and Segway rides
- Fish and reptile encounters
- Local beers, food, and soft drinks
The BBQ competition will feature local “backyard pitmasters,” who will begin cooking Friday night to have their delicious food ready for the judges and a few lucky guests to determine a winner on Saturday afternoon. The three main areas of focus include Carolina style pulled pork, a signature beef dish, and a main dish or veggie-based side.
Beyond Boundaries is a non-profit that specializes in giving individuals with disabilities, at-risk youth, and veterans an opportunity to embark on outdoor adventures—such as hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing—in Richmond. The organization will be collecting donations to help provide these life-changing services.
