The Washington Redskins will be holding their training camp in Richmond this year at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center (2401 W Leigh St.) from July 25 – August 16. Since it’s just down the street from Robinson, we’ll be participating in a concerted marketing effort to welcome fans of the team to our neighborhood!
Businesses on Robinson will hand out maps at the camp, hang Redskins flags from their shops and install two large banners at Broad and Robinson to entice visitors. We’ve also commissioned a local artist to create long-lasting sidewalk chalk drawings along Robinson to enhance the area’s pedestrian friendly nature. Currently, we’re working with the city and trolley company to ensure a trolley stop at Robinson.
There are sure to be a number of promotional events throughout many Robinson Street businesses, so be sure to visit and support the Redskins!
