On Saturday, February 13, Roanoke Fire-EMS celebrated the homecoming of our beloved Trojan Dog from its temporary location at Raleigh Court Library. Personnel helped relocate the installation with a grand homecoming, filled with lights and sirens.
This installation has been an adored fixture in the Raleigh Court community for over a decade. Ann Glover, the artist, first showcased this piece in the City’s Second Art in Roanoke Temporary Exhibition in 2010. Ann created the first version of the dog out of marine paint and plywood. After an 18 month stint, the neighborhood rallied to work with the artist and the City to make the piece permanent in 2011.
We are excited to have this cherished installation back home!

We love each and every one of you and want nothing more than to see your smiling faces! Keep doing the right thing Villagers and we'll get through this. Here’s looking forward to a great 2022! ❤️
The Grandin Village Farmers Market (GVFM) supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and food producers.
The GVFM 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).
The market is comprised of 20 farmers and food producers (See the map above.) 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.
We are exploring the possibility of starting Chillage up again in Spring of 2022! We miss all of you and look forward to getting the party started again!
The Grandin Chillage is a family-friendly event designed to bring the community together through good music, cold drinks, great company and positive vibes! A local craft brewery is featured, with Sangria, imported wines and Bud Light also served. Two Roosters Kettle Corn, Cool Blue Ice Cream and a local Food Truck provide some good eating! 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 starting in Spring, with a grand finale of a ChillageFest on the last Saturday in October from 2 - 9 pm featuring 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!
