upcoming events

Poetry and Jazz Nights are back in Shockoe Bottom! We’ll see you on the patio at C’est Le Vin for an evening of vino, verse, and live tunes. Click on the image below for more details.


Join us again in September for an evening of poems on the patio at our 4th Friday open mic home in Richmond’s Manchester district. Please get in touch using the “contact” tab here on our website to reserve a slot to read, or click on the Facebook link & email. No reservation is necessary to simply attend and listen.


We’re winding down our summer reading series at the gorgeous Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens on September 26th! Check out the event Facebook page for details about our features, Courtney LeBlanc and Hope Whitby, and be sure to bring a poem or two for the open mic!

A gentle reminder as we venture back out into the world: as our in-person events are (for now) under the open sky, some remain dependent on weather …as well as subject to cancellation due to COVID-related escalations/changes in local government policy. Any revisions to event status will be posted on the River City Poets Facebook page, so please check it out before heading out the door!
