About Us

Bringing Neighbors & Friends Together

Blackwater Community Events in Franklin, VA is dedicated to building a better, stronger, civic-minded community. We welcome people from all over, encouraging residents to talk, youth to participate in events, visitors to shop our small businesses and people to engage with each other. Our mission is to organize meaningful events that connect the lives of those living in the Blackwater River communities in order to make them better places to live, work and play.

With a small staff of dedicated leaders and a core group of volunteers, we have managed to build a number of partnerships with local businesses and organizations from around the Blackwater River area. It is our partnerships that have allowed us to create programs, host events, and encourage residents to become engaged.
