Starting at Percival's Island in Lynchburg and ending in Richmond, the James River Batteau Festival runs June 15th through the 22nd.

The event invites crews to build replicas of 18th and early 19th century wooden cargo vessels that they will use along the 120 mile journey. This trip has been an annual event since 1985.
