Annual Happenings Encourage You to Find Your Freedom

Greater Williamsburg's fairs and festivals give visitors and residents the opportunity to celebrate craft beer, colonial history, nature, and more. During the summer come to the Butterfly Festival at the Botanical Garden and flutter around with over 200 butterflies. During the fall spend your mornings at Market Days where over 35 vendors come to sell fresh produce and other foods from 9 am to 1 pm. Beer lovers alike flock to Bier Fest at Busch Gardens, where they enjoy dozens of draft beers, flights, and live music. No matter the day, month or year you choose to visit, there's always an event happening in Williamsburg.
