The Henrico Citizen is Henrico County’s award-winning, independent hometown news source.
Since 2001, the Henrico Citizen has been in business to connect county residents with what’s going on in our community.

In 2015, the Citizen's parent company created and hosted the first two editions of Henrico Restaurant Week, which involved more than 40 Henrico restaurants and raised more than $10,000 for the Henrico-based Virginia Home for Boys and Girls and Henrico Christmas Mother program.
