Richmond Waldorf School recently purchased a building and for the first time in its 20-year history, will have a dedicated space for the School to operate.

"We're just really thrilled to be doing this festival for the first time in our new location," Board Chair Katie Adams Parrish said. "The fact that we just bought this property is where we're going to be able to celebrate in our own home."

There will also be English folk dancing, bluegrass and jazz music, and puppet and clown shows.
