Tom Tom Founders Festival


Founder’s Day is more than just a celebration that takes place on the grounds of U.Va. Thanks to the Tom Tom Foundation, a non-profit organization that strives to educate the public about innovation and entrepreneurship, paying tribute to Thomas Jefferson on his birthday has become a Charlottesville tradition.

The Tom Tom Founders Festival (TTFF), the community-wide celebration spanning Mr. Jefferson’s birthday weekend, April 10-13, 2014, will feature innovative talks, workshops, panels, concerts, block parties and pitch competitions. With such a variety of events, there is truly something for everyone. Unless otherwise noted, all TTFF events are free and open to the public.
