RVA Magazine has also been involved in putting together and sponsoring cultural events including the Falling From Grace music festival, Halloweek (which included Richmond's first Halloween parade by puppet theatre troupe All the Saints), and the Carytown NYE Bash (New Year's Eve street event which drew close to 20,000 people—a first of its kind for Richmond). RVA was not involved in the 2008-2009 Carytown NYE Bash, which was a product of the Carytown Merchants Association.
RVA is free to the public, both in print form, and in multiple digital formats on their webpage. Virginia Commonwealth University's art school sends hundreds of copies of RVA to prospective art students every year to highlight the area's cultural activity.
RVA has won numerous design awards, including two from Graphic Design USA in 2008.
