Are you part of a local organization that wants to host an event during the 12th Annual Tom Tom Festival: TOGETHER? We'd love to partner with you! 

From the beginning, Tom Tom’s schedule has been filled with community-led events that are planned and run by the Charlottesville community. Tom Tom’s success is directly tied to the hundreds of participating and supporting organizations who share their skills, interests, and missions and help build a brighter tomorrow. 



Partner Programs are public-facing events that highlight important work being done in the community, and ideally feature collaborations between organizations that encourage year-round partnerships.

Partner events can be a wide range of formats: a charity run, a mini-festival, a series of discussions or lectures, a competition or workshop. They can be free or ticketed. The main thing, they must add some kind of value to the Charlottesville community that aligns with the core principles of the TOGETHER Festival.
