(WTVR) - With several events going on this weekend, you should expect some road closures and delays.

The Richmond Jazz Festival will be taking place at Maymont on Saturday, so parts of Meadow Street will be closed. There will also be some congestion at the main entrance on Hamilton Street.

If you can't find parking, there will be a free shuttle from Dogwood Dell to Maymont.  You can also pay $8 to park at the VCU Cary Street parking deck.

You should also expect a lot of traffic on Woodman Road and Lourdes Road in Glen Allen for the Filippino Festival on Saturday.

On Sunday, Cary Street from Thompson Street to Colonial Avenue will be closed for the Carytown Watermelon Festival.  There are neighborhoods nearby where you can park.
