The enjoyment we’ve had over more than three and a half decades, along with the attention we’ve brought to the James, the Batteaux, and this interesting and exciting period in our history, make the festival a totally unique event for everyone involved. It’s the ONLY historic reenactment of its kind that we know of in the world!!
For those who ride the batteaux, those who follow along the banks, and those who attend the evening festivals, this romantic recreation takes history out of the history books and into peoples’ lives.
Thanks for being a part of our history!
We’ll see you in 2023 beginning Saturday, June 17th, and going through Saturday, June 24th for the 38th James River Batteau Festival!! And we’ll have a grand fun time!!!
