“The Pecan Festival is held each year to support RBC students and the community, while helping to grow tourism in Virginia,” said Jamie Camp, Event Coordinator.
Richard Bland College is home to the oldest & largest pecan groves in Virginia. There are nearly 1,000 pecan trees on the grounds. Each year the pecans are harvested and proceeds used to advance student success and maintain the groves.
