The Great Richmond Trivia Bee is a team-based competition for people who love words, pop culture, history, literature – and showing off their random knowledge, all while having a blast! It’s also the signature annual fundraiser for The READ Center.

Support of the Great Richmond Trivia Bee helps adults in the Richmond community develop the skills they need to improve their lives as employees, family members, and citizens. In the Richmond area, one in six adults have low literacy skills. Low literacy skills affect an individual’s health, education, employment, housing, and economic outcomes. Literacy skills are critical to navigating employment changes, keeping up with health and wellness needs, and adapting to a digital society.
