Saturday April 13 is TJ’s B-day (ie Founders Day), and we’ve got an Downtown wide event that takes over the Mall and explores ground-breaking research, new discoveries, innovative technology, education, local food and agriculture, and historic architecture. It’s outdoor concerts, innovation expos, and a locavore bananza.
There’s a reason it’s all taking place on Founders Day: It’s difficult to find a better symbol of revolutionary thought, cross disciplinary innovation, and expansive curiousity than Mr. Jefferson.
Tom Tom is of course a play on the name, without being all stuffy about it. And here’s a snapshot of some of the fun to be had on Saturday:
Tom Yum:: Field to Fork Expo! Expanding a Cville Institution, the Saturday morning market, into an exposition of talks, local food demonstrations, and live music.
Tom Talks: A talk series from local Charlottesville innovators telling their stories about new ideas in Education, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Technology & Media.
Picnic Day in Lee Park at the Garage: Over 20 in all, scattered throughout the market, cross streets, and at the Garage, the little venue with a big draw straight across from Lee Park.
