WWII Home Front Festival & “Rosie Rally” World Record | Richmond

Thousands will gather at the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park for the 3rd Annual “Rosie Rally” and Home Front Festival.

Dressed as the iconic Rosie the Riveter, a character from a Westinghouse propaganda poster recruiting women to the workplace in WWII, participants will attempt to defend the Guinness World Record for “The Largest Gathering of People Dressed as a Rosie the Riveter.”

This record was successfully claimed at the Park’s first Rosie Rally in 2015. The record now stands at 2,229 Rosies. Help defend the title and make history (again.)
