Historic Richmond's Quoit Club

Where History & Architecture Meet for Conversation & Cocktails

GetInvolved

Want to get on the guest list for some of the most exciting social engagements in Richmond? Membership in the Quoit Club gets you an all-access pass to the past, with members-only tours inside some of the most interesting buildings and locations in the city. You’ll mix and mingle with great people, enjoy fantastic food and drink and absorb fascinating expert commentary on Richmond history, architecture and culture. Part Happy Hour and part field trip, there’s nothing quite like a Quoit Club event.

Traditionally, quoits was a game played during the 1820s and 1840s with steel rings and metal spikes--think 19th century horseshoes. Through social gatherings, the Quoit Club supports Historic Richmond’s mission by engaging its members in caring about and for our distinctive built environment: past, present and future.

The season runs from March until October of each year; events are typically scheduled for the third Thursday of each month. Members must be at least 21 years of age.

                          A special thank you to our sponsors!
