Block Party
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Festival Pass - Free.
Heads up, party people! Our open-air block parties in historic downtown Charlottesville showcase the best in music, art, tech, and local food. We pack Market Street Park with a nonstop concert series spanning all three days, craft beers, tech and art showcases, a food truck round up, and Festival fun for every age. 

On Friday, rock out to the soulful sounds of San Francisco-based Con Brio, catch funk fusion icons The Fritz, jam out with Goose, and don’t miss the jazz stylings of Charlottesville locals, ADAR.

Then Saturday, turn up the heat with funk-rock heroes Sister Sparrow, along with Con Brio (pt. 2!), Richmond-based funk-soul band Erin and the Wildfire, and reggae rockers, Roots of a Rebellion.

Sunday’s lineup begins with a gospel hour and then continues with gogo, folk-fusion, and americana.

Elby Brass Downtown Parade
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Festival Pass - Free.
If you ever hear trumpets, trombones, and other brass out on the streets of small towns in Virginia, you’re likely within earshot of Elby Brass. The funky, jazzy, full-of-non-stop-energy band is a group of sassy and brassy musicians who see the world as their stage. Routinely, audiences see them taking the stage only to march right off of it and peel through the open roads of the city they’re in, bringing the whole community together on impromptu parades that keep the ruckus going long into the night.
