Crab Festival

About The Event

If you’ve ever spent a Saturday relaxing with a bushel of crabs and your favorite beer, CRABS, BEER & SPIRITS by the JAMES is where you want to be. Join us for the perfect family-friendly end of summer event! Relaxation and fun at its finest.

Eat all the crabs you can while enjoying local craft and national beers by the banks of the James River on Brown’s Island in downtown Richmond, Virginia. This popular event location sets the perfect backdrop. Enjoy live music performances along with multiple DJs to keep the crowd moving. Shop with specialty vendors for that unique item that you won’t find anywhere else.

If you’re not that into crabs but still want to attend, or you want something to add to your meal, we’ll have some of RVAs best food vendors on-site. There will also be other beverage options for those who prefer something other than beer.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Please do not bring outside food or coolers. This is a rain or shine event – no refunds!
