Have you finished your holiday shopping and looking to relax this weekend? If so, there are so many things happening in Loudoun this weekend! Try a family-friendly holiday cookie pairing at a winery, or relax with a beer in hand while someone else wraps your presents (talk about unwinding!). If you’re looking to entertain your family with an unforgettable holiday experience at an animal park, there’s that too! Loudoun is a wonderful place to be at all times, but the holidays are truly special. We hope you enjoy your weekend and don’t forget, use #LoveLoudoun to show us your weekend fun!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year to indulge in a Holiday Cookie Pairing at Bluemont Vineyards! December 15th-17th, pair your favorite Bluemont wines with delightful holiday treats from local bakeries; each pairing features 5 wines and 4 holiday treats. But, the fun doesn’t stop there! This is a family-friendly event so children are welcome too. Your child can participate in the kid-friendly version which offers cookies and milk- how fun!  

Looking for a memorable, family-friendly holiday event? Head over to the Christmas Village at Leesburg Animal Park on Saturday, December 16th for pony rides, photos with Santa, arts and crafts, animal petting, marshmallow roasting and live animal encounters! With thousands of holiday lights, a nativity scene, and Christmas trees and wreaths, you’re sure to get into the holiday spirit!

Not in the mood to wrap your own presents? Don’t worry, Old Ox Brewery has you covered with their Pints & Present Wrapping event from 12:00-6:00 pm on Sunday, December 17th! You do the shopping, Old Ox will do the wrapping! Bring your own wrapping paper, or select a paper provided by the brewery. Relax and enjoy a beer while someone else wraps your presents- what better way to unwind before the holiday! There is no cost associated with this event, but Old Ox does ask that you kindly donate to The Rotary Foundation.
