What a way to say goodbye to the summer.

The Richmond World Festival is putting on a huge party during the first weekend of September, and the real kicker is that, like all the best things in life, it’s free.

The festival will also include a culinary stage, a wide world of sports, a digital carnival, and more, so even the most stubborn attendees can—hopefully–find something to enjoy.

You may actually want to bring a few bills in your wallet if you’ve got a good nose and weak will-power, as more than 50 food trucks will be lining up at the festival.

Or you might find something shiny at the artisan marketplace—and it’s never too early to start buying Christmas presents.

You won’t need to worry about locking down a ticket for the live music at least, as popular bands will be playing throughout the entirety of the festival.

Tokyo Police Club and Dragonette will be taking to the stage in front of the massive crowd (did we mention they’ll all get in for free?) along with Verbal Jint, The Freshest, Dirty Radio, Buckman Coe, and more. Altogether there will be over 75 artists on nine stages.

So don’t feel too bad about August coming to a close. The sun will still be shining, the days will still be long, and the bands will still be rocking come September 1 and 2.
