In the wake of the attacks on September 11th, Lighting of the Lawn began 17 years ago in order to bring the Charlottesville community together.


Our Mission

Lighting of the Lawn 2018 took time to say that we are Brighter Together. Lighting of the Lawn 2018 presented a space for everyone in our community. Lighting of the Lawn 2018 offered a place for reflection, positivity, and most importantly: UNITY. 

Because ultimately, we are Brighter Together.
