James River Week, September 10th to September 17th,  is a week-long celebration of Virginia’s most incredible natural asset!

This week is the culmination of many like-minded groups coming together to offer recreational, environmental, and educational activities in, on, and around the James River. We are extremely grateful to this long list of restaurants throughout the James River watershed that are offering a 10% donation to the James River Association on one of their seafood dishes during James River Week.
