Are you in full “working for the weekend” mode? Let this list of Loudoun events assist you in making fun plans to enjoy once Friday rolls around!
Fun at the Fair
Grab your family and friends and head to the fairgrounds! Since 1936, the Loudoun County Fair has been a family friendly activity to take advantage of each summer. Don’t miss the chance to experience a true county fair! During the week-long schedule, enjoy carnival rides, 4-H animals, live music and various forms of entertainment. From a demolition derby to bull riding to a full-blown lawn mower race – yes, that is a real thing – the fair is in no short supply of unique activities! Don’t hesitate to try something new, maybe even the kiss-a-pig contest!
Want a unique day date idea or to try something new with your bestie? Learn skills worthy of impressing your friends at your next gathering with a craft cocktail class at The Conche. Discover how to make the perfect classic cocktail as well as get a glimpse at modern recipes with a fun twist! Make reservations that include class followed by a delicious three course lunch.
The education continues at Salamander Resort & Spa’s Mixology 101 class. Work with the beverage team to learn how to infuse local spirits, make your own simple syrups and shrubs and even learn the technique of smoking hot and cold cocktails!
