Spring has sprung in Williamsburg, and we’re getting ready for a busy end of the month with plenty of options for community fun. Here are some of the places you’ll find us over the next couple of weeks.
- The third annual Hike for Hospice will take place on April 25 at 1:45 p.m. (on-site registration opens at 12:15 p.m.) at Park East in Governor’s Land located at 2700 Two Rivers Road. We’re a presenting sponsor of the event and will have a team for the 2-mile walk that’s followed by a celebration of life to benefit Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg.
- The Williamsburg Craft Beer Festival is April 26 from 1-5 p.m. on the lawn across the street from the Williamsburg Community Building (401 N. Boundary Street) and features 28 craft beers from 14 breweries, great food and music from the Jesse Chong Band. Last year’s event raised more than $11,000 for local nonprofits. Tickets are on sale now and expected to sell out. Stay tuned to the festival’s Facebook page for updates.
- Also on April 26 is Art on the Square, one of the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg’s main fundraisers.
