GDF 2021

It’s a Good Life!

Goochland Day will have a short pop-up parade Saturday morning, September 25, 2021 at 9:30AM then will transition to a festival at the sports complex thereafter until 4pm. We will announce the vendors and the food trucks as well as the previous and reconfirmed parade participants in the coming weeks.

We look forward to all the community support for this great event! If there is anything you would like to see, please message us and let’s talk about making it happen.

We need as many community volunteers as possible to make this great event a success. In the coming years, we hope to get approved funding from the county, but until then, the foundation remains community funded.

"Goochland Day Foundation is a group of citizens, who are not paid, who are pouring their souls into bringing this event back to Goochland because we believe it’s what Goochland wants and needs. Let’s all work together to ensure this is a great event for our community." - Elizabeth Nelson-Lyda

"...there would be vendors on the old courthouse green where you could find homemade jams and jellies, ladies with crafts, quilts, hats, wooden crafts, ornaments, jewelry. Bandstand on the porch of the courthouse where bands or local entertainers performed throughout the day." - Susan Carol 

"Food vendors were spread out everywhere with popcorn booths, cotton candy machines, clowns with balloons. Then up on the old high school football field, there would be a punting contest through the goal posts, sack races, wheelbarrow races, bean bags contests." - Susan Carol
