Tomtoberfest will feature free, local bands (lineup below) throughout the day and night as well as New Belgium Brewing and local brewers, Champion Brewing Company, Wild Wolf Brewing Company, and Buskey Cider serving brews at a craft beer garden.
During the day, a new event, the Community Mixer, will feature over 60 local groups giving back to Charlottesville. They will inform attendees on their missions and current projects to build awareness and partnerships with individuals and businesses alike. The Tom Tom Foundation believes that a deeper collaboration with community groups will help strengthen and unify Charlottesville.
