Women Rock Festival at Hardywood!

  • Hardywood 2408-2410 Ownby Ln Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

Say it with us out loud: WOMEN ROCK!

Join us in our Richmond taprooms on Saturday, March 24th from 1-10PM as we celebrate this undeniable fact. Enjoy an eclectic lineup of live music and a pop-up market featuring just a fraction of Richmond's favorite women artists, women-owned businesses, and community organizations. The taps and the good vibes will be flowing all day long!

The afternoon will be hosted by Richmond actress Kathy Northrop Parker and Beth Stanford, whose passion for turning trying circumstances into community connection inspired the creation of Women Rock Fest.

The day wouldn't be complete without something new to taste on draft! Introducing a new twist on a Richmond classic to pair with this uplifting afternoon, Hardywood Grapefruit Singel will be available for your enjoyment in the taproom and in growler fills to go, along with a wide range of Hardywood beer.

At Hardywood, our mission is to support our community. We are honored to donate 5% of sales from Women Rock to the VCU Chapter of Women Matter & Richmond Peace Education Center ☮.
