A neighborhood favorite, the Children's Parade is a long-standing tradition held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Children of all ages are welcome to participate.

Dress in your favorite holiday costume, decorate a non-motorized float (wagon or small cart). Participants line up at Christ Lutheran Church on Grandin Road between 10 and 10:30 a.m. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and continues down Grandin Road to the intersection with Memorial Avenue. Come join the fun and stay for lunch, shopping or a movie!
The Grandin Theatre will host a FREE showing of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” immediately after the parade!

The movie is shown in the large main theatre, but it fills up fast, so plan to line up at the theatre right after the parade!

Boy Scout Troop 8 will be collecting canned goods for charity during the parade; please bring a donation!

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, some imported wines, and Deb's Lemonade available also. The 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. The alley between Valley Bank and The Roanoke Co-op is included in the event area to accommodate the breweries.

Children 12 and under are free, and all children 18 and under must be accompanied by an adult. We hope to see you at the next Chillage!

Visit the Grandin Village Community Market (GVCM) on Saturdays from 8 a.m. until Noon, April through October, for local food, arts, crafts and music. The GVCM supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and other producers in a vibrant and economically viable marketplace. All items sold at the GVCM are produced within 100 miles of the Market location because “Local is Good.”
