It’s the last full weekend of spring and Father’s Day weekend. So, whether you want to take dad out for some fun, you’re a dad looking for a great way to spend time with the kids, or you just want a reason to celebrate the end of spring, Charlottesville is the perfect place to do it all. We invite you to come join us this weekend for these fun activities:

Friday, June 14:

  • The Rivanna River Company offers an ‘only in Cville’ experience one Friday a month called Voyage to Vines. It’s a self-guided paddling voyage on the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir starting at 5pm and ending up at Chisholm Vineyards with a glass of wine and live music. Your fee includes a kayak or stand up paddleboard, a glass of wine, and the music.
  • The kids will love an After Hours: Who Done It? at the Jefferson Madison Regional Library starting at 6pm. Best for ages 5+.
  • If you remember the 80s (or even if you just appreciate the amazing clothes and hair from that era), then you don’t want to miss the Legwarmers at the Jefferson Theater. Doors open at 8pm and show starts at 9pm. Don’t forget your scrunchies and RELAX t-shirt!

Saturday, June 15:

  • Bring the whole family out to WVPT/WHTJ/PBS’ Family Day at IX Art Park starting at 10am. Curious George will be there, along with face painting, food trucks, and live music. The event is free, but they are asking that folks register beforehand.
  • The annual Juneteenth celebration is taking place at Montpelier from 10am-4pm honoring African American history, food, music, faith, family, and freedom.
