Your Festival bracelet allows for unlimited re-entry to and from the festival, so feel free any time to walk up to the C’ville Downtown Mall (only two blocks away), check out one of the four breweries within two blocks of the Festy, or visit with one of our Festyville Merchant Partners and take advantage of discounts they’re offering Festy attendees all weekend long. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can take in one or more of the 35 wineries located within 30 minutes of downtown Charlottesville, visit Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, check out one of our amazing local fruit orchards, go for a hike in Shenandoah National Park, or even run the Charlottesville half marathon on Sunday! Learn more about activities in Charlottesville below.
