GET YOUR FUNK & REGGAE ON WITH SHOREFIRE!
In late 2009, this group transformed from an acoustic trio known as The Homewreckers to the electric act Shorefire. Shortly thereafter, they were playing shows throughout SW Virginia and supporting nationally touring acts.
Based in the burgeoning music scene of Roanoke, Virginia, Shorefire's sound is an original blend of funk, rock, and reggae music with a focus on memorable melodies and dance-able rhythms.
Vocals, Guitar / Dan Carrell & Matt Tomlinson
Bass / Steele Whisnant Drums / John Beason
New to Chillage, Starr Hill Brewery was founded in Charlotteseville, Va, in 1999 by Mark Thompson and a friend, out of a passion for great beer and live music. In response to growing demand, in 2005 Starr Hill moved to their present location, a larger facility located several miles away in the town of Crozet.
Among the most award-winning breweries on the East Coast, Starr Hill has won 21 Great American Beer Festival, World Beer Cup and Great British Beer Festival medals. In 2015 brand and recipe development leader, Robbie O’Cain, took over as the new Brewmaster.
And, as always, we welcome Two Roosters Kettle Corn. Listen for the bell for some hot, delicious kettle corn!

Mark your calendars! Many of your favorite vendors (and a few exciting new ones) are back for the 2016 season. We'll have market activities for kids on Opening Day and once every month after that.
The Grandin Village Community Market (GVCM) supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and food producers. The Grandin Village Market accepts and doubles SNAP-EBT benefits up to $30.
The GVCM features 100% locally produced products with an emphasis on organic, sustainable, and humane producers, products, and practices. All products are produced within 100 miles of the market location, with the exception of regional seafood from Virginia and North Carolina waters (only if the vendor is local) and coffee (only if the roaster is local).
Currently the Grandin Village Community Market is comprised of 18 farmers and food producers (layout is below!) featuring certified and non-certified organic veggies, fruit, herbs, seasonal seedlings, cheese, pasture raised/grass-fed chicken, beef, pork, and lamb, regional seafood, locally roasted coffee, artisan homemade breads, muffins, baked goods, hot-prepared foods, and fresh-cut flowers.
The Grandin Chillage is a full service event designed to bring the community together through good music, cold drinks, great company and positive vibes! This past season we have made it a family-friendly event as well.
This outdoor event takes place in the area behind Nopale's on the corner of Westover and Grandin Road. This is a multi-level area with space for mingling on the top level, and dancing to the band on the bottom level. A local craft brewery is featured, with Sangria, imported wines and Two Roosters Kettle Corn also on tap. Newly added in 2016 - food from a local restaurant or Food Truck! Local bands offer a variety of music from rock to blues to reggae.
Regular season hours are from 6 - 9 pm on selected Friday nights, with a grand finale of a ChillageFest in October which lasts from 1 - 9 pm and features a variety of bands throughout the day and evening, along with a selection of local breweries.
Children 12 and under are free, and all children 18 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Leashed dogs are welcome. We hope to see you at the next Chillage!
Kudos and a BIG thanks go out to John Bryant, from the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op, and Sam Lunsford, from The Grandin Theatre, for working together to come up with a maintenance solution for the hanging flower baskets in Grandin Village!
The Co-op has purchased equipment to water the flowers, which they will also use to water their own great vegetable and plant offerings. And Sam Lunsford has stepped up to perform the watering and fertilizing of our flowers.
It truly takes a Village, and we are so lucky to have folks like this who step up in times of need!
We are looking for other volunteers to help when Sam can't make it. It takes about an hour to do the fertilizing (which needs to be done every 2 weeks) and about 30 minutes to water all of the baskets (maybe 3-5 times per week, depending on rainfall).
With a few more volunteers, we can setup a schedule for the whole summer that will make it easy on everyone. So send a message via the links below and let us know if you could help by getting on the schedule!
