You can also create your own personalized Festival schedule by adding programs to your online Bookmarks. Bookmarks provide a simple way to keep track of the programs you plan to attend—and it’s a lot more organized than taking a marker to the printed schedule when they arrive this weekend! To add a program to your personal Bookmarks, just create an account (or log in, if you already have one) and then add your favorites to it by clicking on the Bookmarks icon on each program page.

Once you have everything Bookmarked, you can print your personalized Festival schedule or even share it on social media so that all your friends can find you during the excitement of #VaBook2018.
