As a sponsor of the 22nd annual Virginia Festival of the Book you are investing in our community; supporting reading, books, and literacy; and demonstrating your partnership with the premier spring festival in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Designated a “signature community event” by the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, the Festival welcomes more than 20,000 attendees over five days each year.

The Festival offers a host of opportunities for sponsors to reach a broad audience and gain exposure to both local attendees and those from across the Commonwealth and the country. By providing support to this community-wide Festival, with most of its events free for all to attend, you can help sustain the quality of life many residents and visitors seek in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Please contact Jane Kulow for details, including a sponsorship package.
