Spring festival season is upon is in Charlottesville! Coming up in May, there are three great festivals that aren’t to be missed. If you love wine, beer, or local arts and crafts, read on to see what C’Ville has planned that will be perfect for you- all three in the same weekend!
1. Taste of Monticello Wine Trail Festival– Saturday, May 12th. The seventh annual year of this event brings the festival back to the Sprint Pavilion for a lovely, outdoor event (under cover in case of weather issues). It features 25 local wineries that offer tastings (a great way to try several great wineries without having to drive to each one!). You may purchase bottles or glasses of wine at the event, but one tasting from each winery is included with your ticket (that’s a lot of wine!) A VIP ticket includes catering and exclusive wine tastings not offered with the general admission ticket. This is a fantastic event if you are thinking of visiting C’Ville to try the great wine around the area!
2. Spring Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival– Saturday, May 12th and Sunday, May 13th. In the beautiful little town of Crozet, just over ten minutes from the Inn, this Arts and Crafts festival happens twice a year. It is one of our favorite events to attend! See handmade goods from over 120 jury selected artisans and enjoy local music, food and drinks (craft beer and wine) from local vendors. If you like craft shows, this is a fabulous one to attend!
3. Know Good Beer and Bourbon Festival– Saturday, May 12th. This is a locally owned and operated craft beer festival that takes place twice a year. It aims to bring the best quality local (and beyond) craft beers all to one place in IX Park. You’ll get to sample several beers and bourbons, and food trucks will be available as well. This is a fun festival that any beer lover would enjoy!
