Journey Down the James


Since 1985, the James River Batteau Festival has been a cherished event in downtown Lynchburg. Crews build replicas of 18th- and early-19th century wooden cargo vessels and then make an eight-day trek to Richmond down the James River. The launch of the 37th annual event is set for June 18 at 11 a.m. at Percival’s Island.
