Fun for the Whole Family

Picture this: it’s Saturday, you’re enjoying delicious wine at a gorgeous vineyard, a plate of chocolate truffles is at your fingertips… and your child is getting to meet one of their literary heroes. Come on, now — that’s the weekend activity jackpot! 🏆 Join us at 868 Estate Vineyards and meet local author, Millie Gallahan. She’ll be signing her children's book, “Our Princess Daisy,” a wonderful gift for any little 🤴👸 in your life! 

Bundle up and do your best snow dance at the Village at Leesburg’s 6th Annual Winter Ice Fest and Mega Block Ice Carving Competition! Witness eight world-renowned ice carvers in action as they share their passion for frozen sculpture (winning the competition would just be the ❄️icing❄️ on top for these champion chiselers). Stroll the boulevard and enjoy music, an iceless ice skating rink, cozy igloo lounges and photo ops with the Washington Capitals’ Slapshot. Join in the icy fun with interactive games and activities made completely out of ice! Stay warm by grabbing a to-go drink from participating restaurants, or cozy up inside with event day specials. Come make the most of the winter weather, and watch the magic unfold 🌬️✨

Yes, Chef!

While you’re at the Village at Leesburg celebrating the chilly season, give a warm welcome to ChefScape at the food hall’s Grand Opening! Grab lunch or dinner from one of the four amazing featured concepts in this innovative space: Rooted + Bloomed, Muggerz BBQ, Sultry Soul Food and Sandwich Bistro. Any cuisine pairs well with a to-go Bar AhSo beverage 😉 Live music and a DJ will keep this party going strong! 

If the chilly weather has really gotten to you lately, melt all those frosty feelings by celebrating National Cheese Lovers Day at Breaux Vineyards! Munch on five new cheeses hand-selected by National Champion Cheesemonger, Perry Soulos, and vote for your favorite to be added to Breaux’s menu! Delight in the dreamiest, creamiest dairy treats, and perhaps even take something home with you... Personally, we’re huge fans of Loudoun local and all-around (G)reatest (O)f (A)ll (T)ime 🐐: Georges Mill Farm 🧀🤤🙌
