Brambleton Now is a recurring blog feature that outlines upcoming things to do around Brambleton Town Center and greater Loudoun County. Stay tuned for more community updates, must-see events and local specials.
Annual Fall Festival on October 10th
Brambleton Town Center hosts Brambleton’s largest event of the year, our annual Fall Festival! Come out on October 10 to enjoy the cooler temperatures, bright fall colors and plenty of activities for the family. As usual, we’ll have rides, moon bounces, food & beer, and live music. There are also two ways to take part in a friendly competition: whip up your best recipe for our 3rd annual chili cook-off, or give our cornhole challenge a toss. The Fall Festival is free to attend and unlimited ride wristbands are $15/person. Click here for more info or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Leaf Peeping on the Brambleton Trails
There’s something therapeutic about getting out for a walk in October and feeling the crunch of leaves under your feet. Our favorite thing to do this time of year is head out for a hike or a bike ride on Brambleton’s 12+ miles of paved trails and taking in the fall colors as the leaves start to change. There are many trails to choose from, so click here for a map of the trail system.
LoCo Brewfest at Lost Rhino Brewing Company on October 24th Visit Loudoun and our friends at Lost Rhino Brewing Company have teamed up to bring Loudoun County it’s own version of Oktoberfest. LoCo Brewfest will be the first festival to feature breweries from Loudoun County exclusively, so everyone from Adroit Theory to Quattro Goombas will be serving up suds. The Brewfest takes place at Lost Rhino’s brewery and also features food and live music. Head here for tickets and more info!
Town Center Trick or Treating on October 25th Bring your little ghosts and goblins down to Brambleton Town Center for some special treats from our retailers and restaurants on Sunday, October 25! Participating businesses will be giving out treats to trick-or-treaters from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Supplies are limited, so come early! For more details, see our Facebook event.
Al Fresco Dining Before Winter
Fall is your last chance to take advantage of dining outside at restaurants like Lost Rhino Retreat, Blue Ridge Grill and more before winter arrives (and boy, do we wish it didn’t). Grab a sweater and enjoy the cooler weather with a dinner date night featuring some great food. A lot of the restaurants have great ongoing specials, which you can click here to find all in one spot.
Brambleton Farmers’ Market – Every Sunday
Our weekly Farmers’ Market is in full seasonal swing in October. Come by Brambleton Town Center every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to find fresh produce for the week. This month you’ll likely find fall flavors in a great selection of apples, pumpkins and squash. Our featured vendor this month is Bigg Riggs Farm out of Loom, WV and featuring fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and much more.
Pumpkin Village Fall Fest
The Leesburg Animal Park is hosting their annual Fall Fest until November 3 for you and the family to get your fill of fall. There is quite a list of activities to enjoy: giant hill slides, hay wagon rides, moon bounces, petting zoo, apple + cider snacks, kid’s maze and even camel rides. Click here for more info.
