If you live in Northern Virginia and have ever wondered what it was like to be a part of the Regency Society of Virginia, here's your opportunity to ask all of your burning questions! Join RSV member Katherine Spivey for a brief overview of early 19th century history and insight into what membership in the RSV is all about. This event is being hosted by the Arlington Pubic Library and more information can be found on their website. We encourage you to attend in period attire, but Regency clothing is not required to attend the event. Registration on the RSV site is for an event reminder only and does not guarantee admission to the event.
Join the RSV and the Norfolk Historical Society and listen as historical interpreter, Anna Deitel, presents the story of Dolley Madison in her own words. There is no charge for admission for this event and RSV members and friends are encouraged to attend in period attire (although it is not required). Registration is encouraged.
Help celebrate the 276th birthday of the nation's third president, Virginia's own Thomas Jefferson. Poplar Forest, Jefferson's retreat located just outside of Lynchburg, is hosting a "Birthnight Ball" for Mr. Jefferson and the Regency Society of Virginia is searching for volunteers to assist in adding to the ambiance of the evening by demonstrating dances of the Jeffersonian period as well as attending the occasion in period attire. We ask that those who are interested in volunteering be willing to attend dance practices and/or be familiar with English Country Dancing. Volunteer positions are limited so be sure to register as soon as possible to secure your spot. If you are interested in attending the event without participating with the dance demonstration team, you are welcome to purchase tickets through Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest.
Share the history of the early 19th century with a new generation by volunteering with the RSV at James Monroe's Highland for their annual Girl Scout Day.

Period attire is required for this event and registered volunteers will have lunch provided to them. Please register no later than April 20.
Help welcome visitors to another era during Virginia's Historic Garden Week!

Those who attend are not required to stay for the entire length of the program but we do ask that those who join us for the event wear period attire. Please register for this event no later than April 30.
