MMFF at Westchester Commons was the host location for Central Virginia's biggest block party. This
All-The-Fun-You-Can-Handle fundraiser for some of the area's best charities, is put proudly presented by five Rotary Clubs- Midlothian, Brandermill, Chester, James River, and Huguenot Trail.
The 29th Annual Magnificent Midlothian Food Festival was held Saturday, October 7, 2017 outside at “Westchester Commons”. 4500-5000 people gather each year for a day of mouth-watering food and live entertainment including performances by the Richmond Symphony, En’ Novation, Illbilly’s Band and others under the Symphony’s Big Tent- Live.
Enjoy small plates from more than 15 area restaurants, wine, beer (including Craft Beer), mixed drinks, complimentary soft drinks, and more. Well over $1.7 Million has been raised since its inception. This event draws strong support from local businesses.
Through the joint efforts of these five clubs, people in the community from all walks of life become aware of the charitable efforts of Rotary. Each club brings to the event various groups of people that are willing to sponsor the event. Once a person attends, they always seem to come back. This affair successfully publicizes the work of Rotary in the Community and is designed to attract people who would make good Rotary members.
In 1988, four Rotarians went to a seafood festival in Gloucester, VA. On the way back, they thought, why can’t we do this in Midlothian? Thus the idea for the Magnificent Midlothian Food Festival was born. The 1st event was held at Moorefield Office Park in Chesterfield County and remained there until 1999 when it was moved to The Boulders. It has since been moved to Westchester Commons. Despite being an outdoor event, no Food Festival has ever had to be canceled on account of weather.
The festival hours are noon – 6:00 P.M. Tickets may be obtained from members of the 5 sponsoring Rotary Clubs online, or at the gate ($10.00 more than advance tickets).
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians who are members of more than 30,000 Rotary clubs in 162 countries.
