The 26th season of Friday Night Cheers at Brown’s Island began Friday May 7 2010 and continues til Friday June 25th (except Friday 14th, when Brown’s Island is the site of Dominion RiverRock). Each concert begins at 6:30PM and the music continues til 9:30PM.
This year Friday Cheers is instituting a $2 admission fee on those 13 years old or older. Fee may be paid at all three entry points to Brown’s Island in downtown Richmond, Virginia overlooking the James River. Credit and debit cards will only be accepted at the pedestrian bridge at 7th Street and the vehicular bridge past 5th Street. Venture Richmond, organizer of the event, is celebrating 26 years of music along the river. Thousands relax after the work week on Brown’s Island to meet friends and to hear some of the nation’s hottest touring acts and some of the region’s top bands. Check the schedule and the answers to your FAQ’s.
The William Miller House Bed and Breakfast in Richmond isn’t listed as a downtown place to stay on their website, but we’re less than a mile and a half from Brown’s Island at the most. As a confirmed weekend guest, you can take advantage of free parking at our downtown inn and walk to Brown’s Island or ride the free 2BNB (big green bus stops a block away) to the Bottom and Back to take advantage of this very Richmond series of events.
