The Great Richmond Trivia Bee, #RVATriviaBee, is Richmond’s own live game show. It’s a fast-paced, team-based competition for people who love words, vocabulary, pop culture, history, literature and showing off how smart they are. Teams of three are invited to compete for bragging rights, best team name, and more! Click on the button below for more information, or register a team now.
