Our two General Business Sessions on Thursday and Saturday, as well as our President of the Grand Lodge Reception and Grand Banquet Saturday night, will be held at this venue.
All guests are welcome to join us Thursday night at Champion Brewing Company (401 E. Grace Street, walking distance from the Hilton) for a welcome reception. Socialize with all attendees over free snacks and a cash bar!
Theta DeltsOn The James
You can purchase tickets to join the official undergraduate delegates on the James River Friday morning for their white-water rafting Minerva Session. Learn leadership and teamwork skills while rafting with Undergraduates, or just take your family out on a Rafting adventure! Rafting includes lunch and a custom TDX towel. Rafting is safe for children 10 and older. Not interested in rafting? Don’t worry!
If rafting isn’t your thing, hop on our private air conditioned historical trolley tour instead. A full registration will get you a ticket to either. Both the trolley tour and white water rafting include lunch and a customized Theta Delta Chi towel. There will be plenty of time to explore Richmond’s rich history, excellent breweries, and vibrant art scene.
Fun For The Whole Family
This Convention has your family in mind! For the first time in recent memory the Grand Banquet is offering a Children’s Ticket option, which includes a chicken fingers and fries entrée for our guests 12 and under. You will also get a ticket to the Children’s Museum of Richmond with the purchase of each children’s banquet ticket.
Our rafting event is for ages 10 and older, but the air conditioned historical trolley tour is open to all ages. If you are interested in going on the trolley tour with a child under the age of 12, you can purchase a full child’s registration at a discount.
While the Saturday business session is in full swing, spouses, partners, significant others, non-delegates and family are welcome to join us for a private tour and catered lunch in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

which will include the reading of the Omega Roll by the 141st Grand Lodge. The service will
