Happy June! I can't believe it is already Summer! It's not a surprise that there are so many great events happening in Loudoun on this inaugural June weekend. Whether you want to take a step back in time with Oatlands Historic House and Gardens, see the incredible art in Loudoun during the Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour or enjoy live music on the lawn at Tarara Winery, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Slave Dwelling Project
The Slave Dwelling Project was founded by Joseph McGill, a Civil War re-enactor and descendant of the enslaved. The organization’s mission is to identify and assist property owners, government agencies, and organizations to preserve surviving slave dwellings. To draw attention to the existence of slave dwellings and other buildings that once housed the enslaved, Mr. McGill travels the country and sleeps in the dwellings.This weekend, he will be visiting and staying at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens. Check the website for the full schedule and learn how you can step back in time.
Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour
The Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour offers a weekend of art, shopping and relaxation. Visit the studios of over 60 talented artists as you wind through the scenic countryside and historic villages of western Loudoun County. Enjoy paintings, pottery, jewelry, photography, fiber, sculpture and more!
