It seems that last spring’s Tom Tom Festival just wasn’t enough for Charlottesvillians as nonprofit Tomtoberfest takes the town by storm starting Wednesday boasting innovative business incubation events, a founder’s fair and a block party at the McGuffy Arts Center.

On Friday, head to Greenwood, Virgnia for the  3rd Annual Misty Mountain Music Festival showcasing original bands alongside local businesses and artisans. This family friendly camping event features  the The Hackensaw Boys, Sundried Opossum and more.

You can help save the world at the nonprofit  RVA Peace Festival on Saturday at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Richmond. This multi-cultural, interfaith celebration features entertainment, arts and crafts, food, exhibits, and special activities for kids.

If you know of a cool event coming up, share the love with mary@wnrn.org and make a WNRN Culture Connection. For a recap of my adventures in arts and culture last week go to my blog: culturenuts.wordpress.com where I share about a cool project in Burundi and the two plays I caught at ASC.
