Chesterfield LIVE!

Join us at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds!

The first-ever Chesterfield LIVE! music festival will be Saturday, May 25. This free, family-friendly musical event hosted by Chesterfield County, in partnership with the Richmond Symphony and the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce will feature four premiere musical acts, all performing under the Symphony’s iconic “Big Tent.”

In addition to musical entertainment, there will be a children’s play area with inflatables, local vendors, a variety of local food trucks and Chesterfield’s own, Steam Bell Beer Works, will be pouring local brews for purchase. Bring your family, friends and coworkers to kick off the summer in Chesterfield!

  • Gates open at 2:30 p.m. 
  • No pets, outside food or drinks or glassware will be allowed. 
  • Blankets and lawn chairs are recommended. 

Be sure to mark your calendars, because we’ll be “Walking on Sunshine” and searching for “Good Times” to cure the “Summertime Blues.” So, “Shake It Off” and prepare to “Move Your Feet” to the sounds of Chesterfield LIVE!
