Virginia Festival of the Book
Do you like to spend those cold rainy or snowy days curled up with a cozy blanket, a cup of tea, and a nice long book? Well, fellow bibliophiles, with spring comes your new favorite event: The Virginia Festival of the Book. Held each year during the 3rd week of March, the Festival includes programs and events in bookstores, libraries, theaters, schools, and other venues at the University of Virginia, and across greater Charlottesville and Albemarle County. With its inception in the mid-90's, the Festival is the largest community-based book event in the mid-Atlantic, with annual attendance exceeding 20,000 book lovers.

And when you're ready to curl up with one of the great books featured at the Festival, we have a comfy room waiting for you here at Afton Mountain B&B. We look forward to seeing you at the festival! Happy reading!
