Where: Downtown Mall
Tom Tom Founders Festival is week of music, art, and innovation in Charlottesville, VA, April 13-19. The Festival combines real opportunities to launch ventures with ideas, art installations, bands, and parties in one of America’s most beautiful and historic small cities. This year, Tom Tom will feature dozens of events across Charlottesville’s pedestrian mall. Anchored by the daylong Tom Tom Founders Summit headlined by Reddit, the Container Store, Maker Faire, Lockn' Music Festival, and Chromat, the Festival will also include five free block parties, a farm-to-table restaurant week, three free pitch competitions, a mural series, and a Mid-Atlantic art fair.
Farm To Table Restaurant Week: Explore local farms, breweries, and vineyards with Cville’s favorite chefs during Tom Tom’s Second Annual Farm To Table Restaurant Week, April 13 – 19.
Non-Profit Pitch Night: Meet 16 up-and-coming nonprofits, selected from a pool of over 77 applicants. The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation’s Future Fund is hosting its grantmaking cycle this year as a live, public pitch night. By making this process a festive, supportive gathering for the whole community, Tom Tom and The Future Fund aim to increase public awareness of the powerful work of nonprofits in Charlottesville.
