Hammers & Ales

A family-friendly fundraiser event and community celebration of Richmond’s most impactful environmental organizations & the volunteers that power them.

Join us on the beautiful riverfront green of Brown’s Island for a day of community-centered fun & celebration featuring:


Picnic-Table-and-Bench-Building Project

35 volunteer groups will kick off the event by building 70 picnic tables and park benches that will be donated to Richmond Parks, Recreation & Community Facilities. ToolBank provides the materials, designs, tools & guidance; you provide the cost of materials and an awesome team!

The 3-hour volunteer project begins at 12pm with groups having their own pre-set work station and facilitator ready to go. Stations will be spaced 20 ft. apart to accommodate COVID-safe physical distance. All groups MUST register and pay in advance, so reserve your group’s spot today! Registration fee includes swag bag of t-shirts, cozies, stickers & drink tickets for each team 



Richmond’s musicians have been forced off stage for 18 months, eager to perform in front of a live audience again. On June 12, we’re giving three of RVA’s best bands a stage to themselves all day long!

Experience three sets of incredible music from:

Andrew Alli & Josh Small

Admission is free but space is limited in order to uphold COVID-safe physical distancing.
