Tom Tom Founders Festival

The Tom Tom Founder’s Festival is almost here! This year, the Charlottesville tradition will take place from April 9th to 15th and will celebrate all that our wonderful city has to offer. It will showcase local art, music, and food in spaces all over the downtown area. For the third time, the festival will hold a Cocktail Competition all week long. Charlottesville’s top mixologists will compete for the title of “Best Mixologist” in the city. All entries will feature locally sourced ingredients. Here at Red Pump Kitchen, we take pride in our craft cocktails – make sure to stop by during the festival to taste our Tom Tom creation!

In addition to the Cocktail Competition, the Tom Tom Festival’s fifth annual Farm to Table Restaurant Week will take place. It is designed to showcase local artisans and their commitment to craft preparation. The city’s finest restaurants and chefs participate by offering special dinner menus that highlight local products. We are thrilled to participate and celebrate our city’s local cuisine. Stop by from April 9th to 15th to experience our specially crafted Tom Tom menu. In addition, we’re participating in the Downtown Street Fair from April 13th to 15th. We’ll be featuring street food-inspired specials all weekend long.
