It’s a Good Life!

New this year, Goochland Day will start with a 5K run sponsored by GYAA, then a sizable and dynamic Parade through the Goochland Courthouse, followed by the Goochland Day Festival around the NAPA facility and Goochland Parks and Recreation areas with local bands playing throughout the day and the grande finale concert.

Timeline of Events

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the necessity to reschedule the May 9, 2020 Goochland Day event, the Goochland Day committee and its parade committee is currently exploring a potential partnership and collaboration with Goochland County to combine this year’s Goochland Day event with the County’s 2020 Fall Festival. It is the Committee’s goal to hold ongoing Goochland Day events each Spring, moving forward.


GYAA - 2020 5K Field Of Dreams


Our annual 5K will be held on Goochland Day, before the parade. The race will start and end at the Goochland High School parking lot. The cost to enter is $25 and all proceeds go to our GYAA Fields of Dreams. All 2020 registered softball/baseball players will run for free with their current jersey. Improving Fields Today For Tomorrow!
