Driving Directions

Visit Clarksville's Annual Virginia Lake Festival. This free event has been named "One of the Top 20 Events" by the Southeast Tourism Society for many years. Children will enjoy tethered hot air balloon rides as the event kicks off Thursday night. Sand sculptors begin their artistry on Friday morning and a live band rounds out the day. Saturday morning starts at dawn as balloonists skim the lake and 200+ vendors line the street, including a juried arts & crafts show and a wide choice of food. Music fills the air. Helicopter rides, antique cars and 75,000 people make for a non-stop eventful day. At night fall, boats gather on Buggs Island Lake/John H. Kerr Reservoir and people along the shoreline to see the extravaganza fireworks show. A "must attend" festival.
