Tom Tom Founders Festival

The second annual Hometown Summit will take place in the midst of the seventh annual Tom Tom Founders Festival, an action-packed week celebrating urbanism, creativity, and entrepreneurship in small cities, which last year drew 44,925 in attendance. Join us in historic downtown Charlottesville for seven days of terrific bands, entrepreneurs, artists, and local chefs and farmers. This is the perfect weekend to explore Charlottesville, the home of Thomas Jefferson, the University of Virginia, a legendary craft food scene, and scenic mountains and rivers.
