Charlottesville-Albemarle events

We’ve curated the very best of family activities in our Gold Award-Winning events calendar since 1998. From library workshops and story times to fun runs and big festivals, you are sure to find something for every interest! We even include extra special events within couple hours away that make for a fun family daytrip. Below you will find listings for family things to do like nature walks, markets, festivals and fairs, family movies and shows, art workshops, seasonal holiday events and more.

Please note that although families can rest assured all posted listings are reviewed by our staff for correct content, we cannot verify all information contained in a given entry, and things do sometimes change. Event details change each year, so be sure to check the event’s website before traveling.
