FIRST 20 PEOPLE AT THE GATE GET A FREE GRANDIN CHILLAGE KOOZIE!!!
Get ready for the next installment of Grandin Chillage! Shorefire will be bringing their class act to the stage.
Shorefire’s sound is a fresh blend of original surf-reggae, funk and rock music. They maintain radio-friendly hooks and always move their audience to their feet. As they expand their crowd and fan-base they hope you will join them.
The delicious brew and chow will be coming from the heart of Roanoke, Va. Soaring Ridge Craft Brewers will be pouring their award winning craft beer. Bud light will be on tap, and of coarse we've got you wine lovers covered with the exotic reds, whites and sangria that will be flowing!
Martin's Downtown will be serving up the food, so come hungry! Two Roosters Kettle Corn and Coffee Company will be poppin' it up and Cool Blue Ice Cream Co. will be chillin' with us as well!
Cakes by Tori will have some delicious sweet treats for all ages! Face Painting for the kiddos by Lib's Lab Entertainment, and Judd's Big Fun Events will be bringing large street games to every event, plus free sidewalk chalk galore!

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!
