We love the annual Richmond Folk Festival + the personality system known as the Enneagram.
We’ve recommended a festival activity for every number, from Ones to Nines, to personalize your party this weekend.
Type One — The Reformer
Responsible and rational, Ones will be interested in following the schedule by the letter. Let them pick their favorite performers pre-festival.
Type Two — The Helper
Twos are caring and generous. Connect them with the Bucket Brigade to donate to the Folk Festival, which helps keep the event free to the public.
Type Three — The Achiever
Threes are who you need in a competition, determined and adaptable. Send them to the marketplace to find the best deals among the talented artisans.
Type Four — The Individualist
Sensitive and creative, type Fours should find themselves at the Virginia Folklife Area to explore the Instrument Makers Workshop.
Type Five — The Investigator
The intense and perceptive fives will do well discovering something new to eat with the diverse array of food vendors.
Type Six — The Loyalist
Type Sixes will love the sentimental atmosphere of the Family Stage. They may also gravitate towards the nostalgia + quirky acts.
Type Seven — The Enthusiast
Feed into Sevens’ spontaneous and adventurous nature by sampling the Folk Festbier, Hardywood’s special festival brew.
Type Eight — The Challenger
Dominating and self-assured, type Eights wouldn’t want us organizing their days. Here’s a playlist of performers so they can manage the concert viewing instead.
Type Nine — The Peacemaker
Type Nines will go with the flow, as they’re easygoing and reliable. They’ll enjoy a peaceful evening with these riverfront views.
For parking, concert schedules + festival updates, check the Folk Festival website or social media ahead of and during the celebrations from Fri., Oct. 7-Sun., Oct. 9.
