Welcome to Purcellville!
Known for its blend of history, special events and numerous shops where neighbors greet one another and create an inviting environment, there’s a good reason that Purcellville’s slogan is “Everybody’s Home Town.”
This western Loudoun gem and its welcoming community are so excited to share the Purcellville story with the greater Washington, D.C. region on July 12th when Fox 5 DC broadcasts LIVE from the streets of the charming downtown!
Check out the second half of this blog post for the full “Zip Trip” schedule, so you can decide when you’ll join us Friday morning to be on live TV! But first, if you live outside the Purcellville area, here are some of the must-visit stops to enjoy in this beautiful destination during your trip. Start planning your visit today and use #LoveLoudoun to share your experiences when you arrive!
Franklin Park is a regional park spanning 203 acres and with majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The park's perimeter trail offers a view of the sunset cascading across the sky. The park offers a wide variety of outdoor activities as well as a performing arts center.
Bush Tabernacle Roller Rink
Bush Tabernacle Roller Rink, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a non-profit roller skating rink that serves as the community center and gathering point for many town activities. Built in 1903, the original structure was an amphitheater style auditorium that hosted politicians, evangelists and performers. Now it offers public skating among other events.
Walsh Family Wine
Opened by Nate and Sarah Walsh earlier this year, Walsh Family Wine is Loudoun’s newest winery and joins the 40-plus others that make up DC’s Wine Country. From the Loudoun VA hillside sites, they strive not just to produce premium Virginia wines, but premium wine from an international perspective. Their tasting room is also LEED-certified, providing a unique experience for visitors.
Blooming Hill Lavender Farm & Gift Shop
Blooming Hill Lavender Farm is a tiny “farmlet” owned by Cyndie and Peter Rinek and situated on four acres in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge in Western Loudoun County. It is not only a business but also their home where they welcome visitors to peruse and enjoy the garden gift shop and, most especially, the gardens that highlight countless lavender plants in almost 100 different varieties lovingly tended throughout the property.
As a family owned business, Monk’s is dedicated to making sure your BBQ experience is traditional and authentic. But, this place is more than just a BBQ joint — it is a favorite local destination, which features Whiskey Wednesdays, live music on weekends and a delicious homemade ice cream shop, Tipped Cow Creamery.
