Fall has officially started and as the natives know Central Virginia kicks into high gear with more interesting things to do than any other time of year. This week finds festivals popping up all over the WNRN listening area so here are a sampling of three to get you started…
It seems that last spring’s Tom Tom Festival just wasn’t enough for Charlottesvillians as nonprofit Tomtoberfest takes the town by storm starting Wednesday boasting innovative business incubation events, a founder’s fair and a block party at the McGuffy Arts Center.
Then on Friday head to Greenwood, Virgnia for the 3rd Annual Misty Mountain Music Festival showcasing original bands alongside local businesses and artisans. This family friendly camping event features the The Hackensaw Boys, Sundried Opossum and more.
Once you are TomTomed and Misty Mountained out you can help save the world at the nonprofit RVA Peace Festival on Saturday at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Richmond. This multi-cultural, interfaith celebration features entertainment, arts and crafts, food, exhibits, and special activities for kids.
