Friday’s After Five – STILL FREE!

Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light, continues to be Charlottesville’s favorite live concert series. 2015 will be the 28th year of free live music and fun.  The first event will kick off at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion on April 17th and will run each Friday thereafter ending on September 11. Each week volunteers work the concessions on behalf of a variety of local non-profits who share in the proceeds, which raises tens of thousands of dollars to support their work in our community. The spring and summer schedule features local artists of myriad musical styles; there is something for everyone! Unwind Friday evenings at this fabulous and FREE Charlottesville institution.

Foxfield Spring Races 2015~ 620x400 DL

Foxfield Spring Races

Get your tickets now!

For over 30 years The Foxfield Racing Association has provided a beautiful setting for the equestrian sport of steeplechasing.  The alluring but challenging Foxfield course was designed to attract Thoroughbred owners and trainers, and to provide the jockey and his mount with a beautiful ride over rolling lush green turf.  The Foxfield Racing Association sells reserved parking places in contained areas for the long held and honored tradition of tailgating.  Families, friends, and guest enjoy a tailgate picnic or purchase food from our on site vendors.  Foxfield patrons are regaled with a fun day of horse racing in a picturesque landscape nestled below the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  We invite you to become part of Foxfield’s steeplechasing tradition.
