I love Friday! There’s an excitement to the day – everyone’s in a good mood, looking forward to their weekend plans. It’s an easy reason to celebrate and what better way to kick off the weekend than celebrating with an entire historic downtown district! Leesburg’s monthly First Friday event unites the downtown businesses in a celebration of art and music with some shopping discounts and wine tastings added on to sweeten the experience! Last Friday’s summer storms postponed the monthly event so that it’s now being hosted tonight. If you’ve never experienced First Friday, and even if you have, it’s a great night to come to downtown Leesburg as it’s buzzing with people and live music. Check out the event website and you’ll see there’s a lot going on!

Visit Loudoun participates in First Friday with extended hours in our Visitors Center at Market Station where we host a wine tasting from a Loudoun winery and art show by a regional artist. Stop by tonight and you’ll enjoy a wine tasting poured by the winemaker himself as Jordan Harris from Tarara Winery will be onsite. Our featured artist is Dave White, a professional mural artist and fine art painter. Hope to see you there!
