Fridays After Five
The Fridays After Five concert series is a favorite Charlottesville summertime tradition. The schedule features primarily local and regional artists performing a wide range of musical styles, from rock and blues to salsa and reggae. This is a fun community event for the whole family and a great way to start your summer weekends. Music runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every Friday evening. And best of all, it's FREE!
City & County Markets
First opened in 1973, the Charlottesville City Market continues to be the oldest open-air market in the city, offering a wide variety of food items, produce and handmade goods by local artisans. Different days throughout the week, you can find markets happening throughout the city and surrounding counties. So, support the community by buying local goods.
