Tom Tom Founders Festival

"For one week over Founder’s Day (April 13), the city of Charlottesville is reimagined as a creative canvas for innovators, visionaries and artists. With over 60 bands, 200 speakers and 400 community organizations, the Festival spills through outdoor spaces, theaters, galleries, concert halls and more. Through a diversity of disciplines and engagement with forward thinking makers and doers, we build on the rich history of the city while chart a new path into the future."
