Make your own button! Visit RAGA board members and staff at the World Festival grounds. To celebrate Richmond World Festival, the Richmond Art Gallery Association breaks out their button press for kids of all ages to turn their art into a custom 2 ¼” button. This fast ‘n’ fun craft only takes a few minutes, but you can enjoy the product of it for years to come. Free drop-in at the RAGA booth at the World Festival grounds.
