Goochland Day is a family fun community event for everyone with support from Goochland Day Foundation (GDF) and community services organizations. GDF is a independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization with direct oversight by Board volunteers who are unpaid and have a passion for Goochland.
"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
