The Richmond Maritime Festival is committed to fostering positive environmental, social, and economic impacts for current and future generations within the local economy.

The Richmond Maritime Festival is following the recommendations set out by the City of Richmond’s Sustainable Event: 7 Step Quick Guide.

Recycling and Reducing Waste

The City of Richmond Green Ambassadors will be onsite to ensure the proper disposal and recycling of the waste generated from our event.

Making Smart Water Choices

The City of Richmond’s Tap Water Station will be on site so bring your refillable water bottles!

Creating a Positive Local Impact

Our local volunteers, artists, and vendors all help build a sense of community within our festival.

Promoting Clean Transportation
