About this event

Unfortunately, we made the hard decision to cancel Summerfest 2021 earlier today. With COVID cases rising, our ICU's full, and the national guard being called in to help out our healthcare workers, it doesn't feel like a good choice to have a large festival at the moment. Registration fees will be refunded.

Summerfest is the largest fundraiser for the Virginia-Highland neighborhood and pays for many great organizations and projects such as grants to our schools, and library, as well as tree plantings and park improvements. This year we had planned to invest proceeds in the restoration of John Howell Park and Playground. If you would like to make a donation to that effort, you can do so here.

If you have any questions please contact Kay Stephenson kay.stephenson@gmail.com

This year’s Summerfest 5K Road Race will take place Saturday, September 25 at 8 am and will feature 1,000+ runners winding their way through the streets of Virginia-Highland. A few reasons to sign up:
