The Lazy Man Dub Band came together in Fall of 2007 by a happy set of fortunate circumstances. Starting in Roanoke, Virginia, the band has been laying down the jams all across the state and leaving in its wake an exploding fan base.
Constantly evolving as a group, Lazy Man relentlessly experiments with their sound, by bringing new and different arrangements to the table each night. No two Dub shows will leave you feeling the same. The Lazy Man Dub Band is bringing roots rock reggae to the masses, one party at a time.
Thai This Food Truck will be keeping it fresh and spicy with some of the best food to ever come through a window. They have become a Chillage favorite!
Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers is downtown Roanoke's first craft brewery. Their family friendly brewery features six flagship beers available year round and a rotating selection of seasonal beers. They have a wide variety of hand crafted brews, special events and open air brewery.
Two Roosters Kettle Corn and Coffee Company will have that salty sweet goodness that we are all addicted to, as well as their new, unique flavors! Cool Blue Ice Cream Co. will be keeping the kids sticky and sweet with their frosty treats.
Cool Blue Ice Cream will be bringing it for the kids! Primarily a Hershey Ice Cream product distributor featuring items such as Screwballs, P-nutty Butty, Ice Cream Sandwiches, etc., they also offer a variety of candy, snacks and refreshing beverages! Their goal is to provide customers with bargain prices, allowing them the opportunity to purchase items for the whole family!
APRIL - OCT | 8 - NOON
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 and the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op, for stepping up to create 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 various employees and volunteers step in to keep the baskets watered and fertilized.
It truly takes a Village, and we are so lucky to have folks like this who step up in times of need!
