The JMU Alumni Chapter of Richmond presents the annual Crabfest, a full day of food and fun! Join fellow JMU alumni, friends, and family for our chapter's largest scholarship fundraiser at Hanover Cold Harbor Ruritan Park on June 18th! Cost is $35 per adult until June 8th*, and children 13 and under are FREE!
Feast from 12pm until 5pm on delicious fresh crabs, shrimp, hot dogs, and corn-on-the-cob; five complimentary beer tickets, and unlimited non-alcoholic beverages are also included. Listen to live music from Vexine. There will be a petting zoo for the kids to enjoy. Bring your tailgating tents, cornhole sets, and JMU gear for this can't-miss tradition. Don’t forget to bring cash, as well, for the raffle (you could win 50/50 cash or homecoming tickets), cornhole tournament, and to shop with our vendors – selling local products and JMU gear!
Volunteer positions are available to those who want to do more. Different shifts are available and volunteers receive half-off their ticket price in exchange for their time.
*Registration increases to $45 on June 9th. Registration closes June 15th at 11pm. No refunds after May
17th. No walk-ups permitted. Event is held rain or shine.
