2023 Fall Weekend

Hello Friends,

We hope you’ll join us in Charlottesville from Friday October 6 – Sunday October 8, 2023, for QVA’s 24th annual Fall Weekend! Last year we were joined by more than 125 people despite the best efforts of a 3-day hurricane. This year, we are excited to once again celebrate the people who make LGBTQ+ progress possible as we forge ahead towards a truly inclusive University — but seating is unfortunately limited, so please take advantage of early ticket prices! Early Bird pricing ends September 22 at 11:59pm ET.

We have an exciting schedule* of events planned for the weekend:
