Thursday, July 6-July 30 – Richmond Shakespeare Festival: “Macbeth” – “Something wicked this way comes…” and it’s already time for the second play of the season at the Richmond Shakespeare Festival. See the classic tragedy “Macbeth” in all its gory glory at Agecroft Hall. Grounds open at 6 p.m., performance at 7:30 p.m. at Agecroft Hall, 4305 Sulgrave Road.
Friday – Evening with Da Vinci – If you haven’t seen “Da Vinci Alive: The Experience” at the Science Museum yet, this Friday might be the perfect time to do it. The exhibit offers an in-depth look at Da Vinci’s life and work and has been resonating with a more adult audience, rather than the Science Museum’s typical kid-centered exhibit. That’s why the museum decided to keep the museum open late on Friday nights in July to give grown-ups who might be working during the day a chance to see it.
Saturday – Hanover Tomato Festival – It’s finally here! The celebration of our local beloved, favorite fruit: the Hanover tomato, at the peak of the season. Stop by for freshly sliced tomato sandwiches, fried green tomatoes and tomato pie. Plus music, arts and crafts, children’s activities and tomato-themed contests. 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Pole Green Park, 8996 Pole Green Park Lane, Mechanicsville.
Saturday & Sunday – VA Comicon – The VA Comicon has a new location at the VCU Student Commons. Meet original Power Rangers, the creator of G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes, Storm Troopers, members of GWAR and more. Browse comic books, movies, costumes and video games. Family-friendly and free for kids under 10. Saturday noon-6 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 907 Floyd Ave.
