The seasons are changing here in Loudoun! Come party with us as we dig into September with concerts and festivals galore ✨ As always, be sure to tag #LoveLoudoun when you post pics of your weekend adventures!

That Fall Feeling

Do you hear that? The distant rumbling of your furnace waking up as temperatures drop, the gentle rustling of fallen dry leaves skirting along the pavement in a brisk breeze… AUTUMN IS COMING, PEOPLE. If you’re anything like us, you were beyond psyched to break out your sweaters this past weekend. Next stop, fall festivals. We’ve got two in Loudoun County this weekend that are sure to knock your ankle socks off (to be replaced with fuzzy woolen socks, of course).

First up, get a hearty dose of old-fashioned family fun at the 49th Annual Bluemont Fair! Get down at this traditional countryside shindig that’s got all your favorites: local arts & crafts for sale, live blues & country music, historical displays, a pie-baking contest, antiques & collectibles, beer & gourmet treats — the list goes on! Personally, we’d show up just to meet the llamas & alpacas…  but the local wine tasting sounds pretty great, too. All this autumnal goodness, compounded by the fact that Bluemont is a gorgeous historic village set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, means we couldn’t be more excited for the weekend.

Get your second dose of fall during the opening weekend of the Leesburg Animal Park’s Pumpkin Village and Fall Festival! Through early November, the park is all about fall, pumpkins and seasonal fun! You won’t want to {leaf} once you see all the festive activities offered — like giant hill slides, hayrides, moon bounces, pedal carts & more! Gourd-ness gracious, we cannot wait to spend crisp fall days at the park!

Cover Band Central

If you’re ready to jam out this weekend, LoCo is really bringing the music with three epic cover band concerts. Say “Hello, hello, hola!” to the weekend with 2U: The World's 2nd Best U2 Show! Friday is a beautiful day to see this band, which has rocked venues all around the world, right here in Loudoun. We hope to see you there, but we’re definitely going, with or without you.

If you still haven’t found what you’re looking for on Friday, come on back {in black} to Tally Ho on Saturday night and throw it down with The Ultimate AC/DC Experience: LIVE WIRE! Shake all night long to some high voltage rock n’ roll as LIVE WIRE emulates the pure essence, power and electricity of what an AC/DC show is all about. With these two options, you’re sure to get your fill of classic tunes this weekend. For those about to rock, we salute you.
