21 Feb Charlottesville ChalkFest and Beer Release – March 3rd
Charlottesville ChalkFest is coming to the Craft Kitchen & Brewery on March 3rd!
We think Charlottesville is an amazing town with some amazing people and organizations and we want to celebrate that! Join us for a day of community gathering and exchanging of ideas.
Communities are stronger when we know our neighbors. Chalkfest is a multi-faceted event focused on building conversation and connections and celebrating the people of Charlottesville.
The day will consist of:
9-11AM: FREE COMMUNITY BREAKFAST
A free neighborhood breakfast will be hosted for the neighborhoods surrounding IX Art Park. Hosted at Three Notch’d Brewing Company, neighbors are invited to share a French toast breakfast and conversation.
12PM: CHALKFEST CELEBRATION PRESENTATION & CHARLOTTESVILLE ALE TAPPING
We’ll unveil a bite-sized, 1-minute video celebrating the people of Charlottesville, our region’s natural beauty, our city’s vibrance, and local innovation. This video celebrates the natural beauty and vibrance of the Charlottesville area, as well as the city’s small businesses, local innovation, and the potential of community gathering. The Chalk video is supported by the Experience Charlottesville, WillowTree, Inc., Silverchair Information Systems, and Ting Charlottesville.
We’ll also raise a glass to the people of Charlottesville with the release of our very own Charlottesville Ale – a collaborative project between us and Champion Brewing Company, Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Random Row Brewing Co., Reason Beer, and South Street Brewery benefiting the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.
11-3PM: NON-PROFIT VILLAGE
A Non-profit village will provide an opportunity for local nonprofits to share their stories and solicit volunteers and participation. By bringing members of the Charlottesville community together with non-profits, Chalkfest aims to provide a mechanism for sustaining conversations and establishing new connections that will last long past the festival day on March 3rd.
Participating Nonprofits include:
Equine Welfare Society
The HOWS Project
Local Food Hub
Literacy Volunteers of Charlottesville/Albemarle
