Returning to Emancipation Park and renewing our commitment to building community

Tomtoberfest will be the first city-wide event held in Emancipation Park since the August 12th demonstration, a day that was marked by bigotry, hatred, and tragedy. It does not and will not define our City. We hope you will join us at Tomtoberfest to stand for positivity, love, and community, and reaffirm Charlottesville as a home to passionate thinkers, creators, entrepreneurs, and innovators who seek to create a better future for all members of our society.
