CDF Closes Shop

The Charlottesville Downtown Foundation has called it quits, WINA reports. A few months ago, it became unclear what the future of the group’s flagship event, Fridays After 5, would be, after the amphitheater was turned over to developer Coran Capshaw. With the amphitheater likely to be under construction throughout this year, Fridays After 5 can’t happen, and so CDF can’t be funded, hence the demise of the group. Capshaw’s agreement with the city stipulates that some kind of cheap or free family music event take place each Friday in the amphitheater, but it’s less than clear that such events will actually take place. 01/12 Update: John Yellig has the story in today’s Progress.

  • stay be going downtown during the summer months after 5. Though, I am not sure if anyone would have the heart to tell them that this isn’t FaF.

    Oh well, btw GOOD JOB city! We want to promote the downtown as long as it doesn’t attract people.

  • where will washed-up 70s rock bands play now that FAF is no more???
