8 Things To Do Around Ashburn in June

May 26, 2016 | by brambleton

From trail runs to beer tastings, summer concerts and Red, White and Bram, here are our picks for things to do around Ashburn in June.

1.  Lost Rhino Retreat’s First Anniversary Weekend

Lost Rhino Retreat has been open at Brambleton Town Center for a full year! On their anniversary weekend, June 3-5, Lost Rhino Retreat has three days of fun planned. On Friday, June 3 they’ll release their anniversary lager and give away pint koozies. On Saturday, June 4 they’re giving away anniversary glassware and releasing two barrel-aged beers, serving up anniversary sliders and running a shuttle bus between the Retreat and the Brewery. And on Sunday, June 5 they’re selling anniversary growlers (with special fill prices) and Dark Hours will be back on draft. That’s enough to plan a weekend around! Click here for more info.

2.  Americana Beer Festival in Leesburg, VA

Now that Brambleton Brew Fest has wrapped up for the year, we’re setting our sights on other local beer festivals.  On June 11, Americana Beer Festival takes place in Leesburg, VA, and while our Bram Brew Fest focused on a very local selection, Americana has a great local and national selection: Adroit Theory, Lost Rhino and Loudoun Brewing Co are showing up, as are breweries like Avery, Victory, Bell’s, Founders and many more. Plus, there’s a “food truck rally,” game zone, artisans and more to see.

 

 

3.  Brambleton B_Fit Trail Challenge

On June 11, Brambleton continues to support its healthy living initiative by hosting our latest run, the B_Fit Trail Challenge. Sign up as an individual or a team to take on 2.5 miles of paved trails throughout Brambleton, including a range of strength and agility challenges along the way. As usual, proceeds from this race go to a great cause, Team Mathias. All ages 6+ and abilities are welcome to participate, and for more info, click here.

 


4.  Father’s Day, Brambleton Stylegift guide for fathers day at brambleton town center

Take care of dad this Father’s Day (which, we should remind you, is Sunday, June 19). Here are some ideas for dad this Father’s Day to get you started:

  • A flight of his favorite beers at Lost Rhino Retreat
  • A custom cup of ice cream at Sweetfrog or Coldstone
  • Take him to see a summer blockbuster at Regal Fox Cinemas
  • Buy him brunch at Nick’s Taverna or Blue Ridge Grill
  • Go for a bike ride around Brambleton’s more than 12 miles of paved trails

Whatever you do, make sure he has a relaxing day!

6.  Kicking Off our Sizzlin’ Summer Concerts with Delta Spur

It’s finally time to bring back Brambleton’s beloved (and FREE) summer concert series! Local top 40 Country band Delta Spur takes the stage on June 23 at the Brambleton Town Center. The show goes on from 7-9PM but gates open at 6PM, and you’re welcome to bring your blankets, chairs, beer & wine (don’t forget your IDs), and get comfy. Pack a picnic, order takeout from your favorite BTC restaurant, or grab something from the food trucks that will be onsite, and come have a great time!

7.  Red, White and Bram

A local favorite, Red, White and Bram is our annual Independence Day festival that serves as an early kickoff to the Fourth of July festivities. On June 25, head to Brambleton Town Center from 6-10PM to have a blast with live music, backyard games, sand sculptures, food trucks, beer and wine, and of course, one of the best fireworks displays in Loudoun County. Entrance is $5/person, kids two and under are free. Click here for more info.

 

8.  Farmers’ Market Sundays

Brambleton Farmers’ Market is back in season and we couldn’t be happier. Come out to Legacy Park every Sunday in June for fresh goods from local vendors like Bread House, Crooked Run Farm, Spread, and many more.  While here, grab a bite to eat from the Happy Crepe and Killer Tomato food trucks. .

And starting June 5th, join the staff at Bicycle Outfitters for a weekly ride on the Brambleton Trails which leaves from the Farmers’ Market at 9:15 and 10 AM.  This is a “no-drop” family oriented ride; we’ll keep a moderate pace so everyone can stay together.  If you are looking for a slightly longer ride, we encourage you to join us for both loops.  A helmet is required, and all participants ride at their own risk.  For questions about the ride, please call 703-327-3222.
