Get to Richmond to see one of the greatest Southern classics of all time as nonprofit Virginia Repertory Theatre presents TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, a timeless exploration of conscience, race, class and justice.

On Saturday, makers of all varieties will display their wares at Charlottesville’s Mini Maker Faire at Monticello High School. Billed as ‘the greatest show (and tell) on Earth”, this is a family friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness. I had the pleasure of seeing Sigrid Eilertson’s entry displayed at Firefish Gallery this week and if her fabulous fashion creation is anything like other items that will be displayed, it should prove to be a wondrous event.

On Saturday, the town of Buena Vista hosts Mountain Day an annual celebration of the culture, traditions, history and natural beauty of the Shenandoah Valley. Bring the whole family to learn about the arts, crafts, music, farming and fun of old Virginia.  I wonder if they will be churning apple butter?


If you know of a great event coming up, let me know about it at and help me to help you make a WNRN Culture Connection.
