Various Nights: Lost Rhino Retreat Hosts Live Music

Lost Rhino Retreat has been open just a few months, but it’s already a popular spot in Brambleton and beyond. They’ve been hosting live music at the brewpub all summer long, and they already have a few acts lined up this month.

September 5 & 6: Epicurience Virginia: An Epic Wine & Culinary Experience


Morven Park in Leesburg hosts four days of events revolving around the best Virginia wines paired with cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs from around the country. It’s called Epicurience Virginia and promises to be “a food and wine festival so unique that no existing names quite fit.” And it’s this weekend, so buy tickets soon! These two events look particularly interesting, if food and wine are your thing:

  • Grand Tasting September 5 – Over forty exhibitors will be sampling and selling Virginia wines and foods. If that’s not enough, there’s live music, chef demos, wine education sessions and more.
  • Sunday Brunch September 6 – Salamander Resort & Spa hosts the official Epicurience Brunch with “bountiful breakfast choices, a carving station, a seafood tower and decadent desserts.” Plus there’s a custom Bloody Mary station and live music. What better way to spend a Sunday?

September 12: Brambleton Kids’ Triathlon

Kids can get in on the fitness fun too! The Brambleton Kids’ Triathlon takes kids from swimming to biking to running (all a short distance) for a safe, fun, and charitable experience that also helps kids get out and get exercise.  Don’t forget to stop for ice cream at Brambleton Town Center afterwards!

September 19: B_Fit Trail Challenge

With fall nearly here and temps cooling down, the B_Fit Trail Challenge is the perfect way to stay fit outside and get good use out of Brambleton’s paved trails. The challenge takes you through 2.5 miles of trail including 11 fitness stations with a range of strength and agility challenges along the way. Proceeds benefit the pediatric cancer charity Smashing Walnuts Foundation. For more info on how to sign up, click here!
