Charlottesville City Market aerial

The Charlottesville City Market will be back April 6th. You know the drill. Get some shopping done, grab some lunch, or maybe a coffee, and be on your way!

Monticello Spring 2

Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and James Monroe’s Highland are, of course, gorgeous this time of year. Now’s the perfect time for a tour, before it gets too hot!

Monticello Trail SignHit the trails! If you’re already up at Monticello, try the Saunders-Monticello Trail. Our mountains are known for looking splendid in fall, but spring is basically just fall in reverse, and the trees look just as gorgeous.

Fridays After FiveFridays After Five will be back after construction is completed on our beautiful Sprint Pavilion, located at the east end of the downtown mall. This concert series has a long and storied history, thanks in part to contributions from the likes of Dave Matthews.
