The Autism Society of Central Virginia (ASCV) is bringing a favorite Richmond event back with a brand-new Festival of Inclusion. People will purchase duck entries and then 7,000+ attendees will gather on Brown's Island for the RVA Duck Race, watching as 15,000 rubber ducks drop into the canal and race toward the finish line. ASCV's Festival of Inclusion will be Richmond's first sensory-friendly festival designed to include and accommodate individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. We have various different volunteer roles that we need filled, from helping setup to pouring beer and wine.
