Amazing Autumn: Fall Fun in Charlottesville

Charlottesville Fall FunAutumn may be the best season to enjoy everything that Charlottesville has to offer. As the weather colors the leaves, the entire city is painted in warm, dramatic colors. The trees on the Lawn become immense works of art, and the Historic Downtown Mall is visited by soft, cool breezes in the gilded afternoon sunshine. And there are so many things to do! Wine tasting, farm visits, music festivals, hiking and more – below are a few suggestions about how to get the most out of the season.

The change in the weather brings with it delicious, ripe apples and fat, orange pumpkins, making this the best time to tour our local farms and taste the produce of a long, hot summer. Celebrate the season at Chiles Peach Orchard 8th Annual Fall into Fun Festival, September 21-22, 2019. You can pick your own apples or hunt down the perfect pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, and get involved in the many activities scheduled. Fresh apple butter will be ready on Saturday afternoon – you can buy some while it’s still warm!

Charlottesville Fall FunMonticello is a delightful destination year round, and in the fall, the grounds exhibit stunning beauty thanks to Jefferson’s carefully tended gardens. Witness the glory of autumn at Jefferson’s home and taste a little bit of history on October 12th at the Monticello’s Tufton Farm apple tasting. This popular annual event gives you the unique opportunity to taste some of the many heirloom apple varieties enjoyed by 19th century fruit lovers.

Charlottesville’s diversity is the source of an endless variety of festivals that include people from every walk of life. A passion for cuisine and a hunger for responsibly sourced food is deeply rooted in Charlottesville life, making this an ideal community to host the Vegan Roots Fest on September 28th. Try some delicious vegan food, hear from educational speakers, enjoy wine and learn about vegan nutrition and how to “shop vegan”. This super charged, informative event will satisfy the merely curious and veteran vegan alike.

Charlottesville Fall FunYou’ll want to take the family to the annual Foxfield Family Day Race, one of the Charlottesville’s favorite traditions, on September 29. The mellow beauty of a Virginia fall day is a lovely backdrop for events for the kids, pony races, and the extremely popular Jack Russell Terrier races. Fall is a particularly nice time for families to visit Foxfield for a more relaxing tempo than the busier, more vivacious races in the spring. Bring the entire family to experience autumn in the Charlottesville countryside and the excitement of steeplechase racing.

Get your holiday shopping started early and bask in the wonderful fall scenery in nearby Crozet at The Crozet Arts Festival. You can shop for art, fashion, crafts, and more offered by over 120 jury-selected fine artists and crafters at this popular biannual event. Live music, children’s activities, festival fare, Virginia-made wine and draft beer complement your search for that perfect, truly one-of-kind gift to give during the holidays. You can have fun getting something for that hard-to-shop-for friend.

Charlottesville Fall FunEach fall, the Historic Downtown Mall comes alive with activity thanks to Charlottesville’s most popular and well attended venue, The Virginia Film Festival. For more than 25 years, the Festival has been celebrating the magic of movies, attracting internationally acclaimed directors and actors to mingle professors and leading cultural experts in a discussion of all that is film. This highly respected event lets Charlottesville citizens not only rub shoulders with the stars, but also encourages everyone to discuss what makes movies so important to us.

Charlottesville itself is a treasure trove of beauty in the fall – walk along one of the many paths that wind through our city and the beautiful, garden edged neighborhoods to experience a breathtaking feast for the senses. Take the time to enjoy everything that is just outside your Charlottesville apartment - autumn is the perfect time to see the celebrate of where we live.
