August 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us on August 20th for a fun Back to School Bash!

Who is ready to kick off the school year right? Before hitting the books and cheering on the Hoos this Fall, we have an epic Back to School Bash for you! Whether you are a Hoo returning to town or your summer in Charlottesville is coming to an end, this bash is to celebrate you!

We invite you to join us at the Dairy Market for a FREE day of patio activities, lawn games, face painting, balloon animals, music, a bike bar, Hoo spirit, and great food and beverages for purchase from our Merchants. All you need to do is grab your friends, wear your school merch, and bring your school spirit!


All Day Back to School Bash on the patio of the Dairy Market.
Enjoy patio and lawn games all day, including corn hole, jumbo jenga, and sidewalk chalk. Celebrate with your favorite Food/Drink from the
