This is gonna be one CLASSIC Chillage! New to the Chillage, but no stranger to the Roanoke music scene, Hoppie Vaughan and the Ministers of Soul will be bringing the R&B straight to your bones!
Hoppie, a native South Carolinian, grew up playing through the club circuit all over the South East and recorded several cuts at the famed Muscle Shoals, Alabama, studio chasing the rock star dream.
His musical style could be described as rhythm & blue-eyed soul. While living in Nashville Hoppy performed countless sessions as a bass player and demo singer for local Nashville songwriters, publishers and producers and recorded jingles in Chicago for Michelob, Hasbro and others. He has performed or appeared with such artists as: Delbert McClinton, ROD PRICE of famed FOGHAT, Mac Gayden, Tommy Two Tone, Jimmy Hall/Wet Willie, Ronnie Milsap, Wayne Perkins, Tommy Castro, Tab Benoit
John Mayall, Sonia Data, Goose Creek Symphony, Gatemouth Brown, Miranda Louise, and The Kentucky Headhunters, to name a few.
In 1996 Hoppie moved to Roanoke, VA. In the last ten years he has released 6 CD projects. "HOPPIESONGS", "FAT DADDY BAND LIVE AND LOVIN' IT", "HOPPIE VAUGHAN & THE MOS WORK", "MEANSVILLE ROAD", "SIMPLE AS THAT", and "LIVING THE DREAM." Hoppie now performs with THE MINISTERS OF SOUL and as HOPPIE VAUGHN solo act. Hoppie was voted best musician Roanoke City Magazine 2012 & 2013. We can't wait for him and the MOS to bring the blues to Grandin Village!
We had such a fun time voting on motorcycles we thought we would do it again! To go with the classic R&B's, we will have a limited display of some beautiful classic cars to vote for. Each patron will be given a token at the gate to vote on their favorite Classic car. At the end of the evening we will tally the votes and write a check to a charity of the car owners choice. Pretty sweet!
Lib's Lab Entertainment will be painting all the pretty faces and Judd's Big Fun Events will be bringing the games! and...sidewalk chalk, lots of it!
The fine folks from Regional Center for Animal Care & Protection will be educating people on how they can help, alongside Carol's Creations. Carol will be bringing you a variety of grain free, organic dog treats, chews and bakery items. With a background in baking and catering, Carol Landrum saw a need for quality, safe treats for all dogs, especially those with allergies! Samples will be available if you want to bring your pooch to try some! The Chillage loves it's doggies!
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!
Apocalypse Ale started as a home brewing setup between a circle of friends and grew to a home brew supply shop. The passion for beer grew greater, and with it came medals and notoriety. Jumping on an opportunity, the Johns made the choice to leave the world they once knew behind them and to put all of their energy into a new idea of their own creation - Apocalypse Ale Works. This ensured there was no pressure to sacrifice any quality for the sake of business. Doug and Lee are committed to using only the finest ingredients and up to six weeks at a time to make a beer, if that's what it takes. It isn't about the volume of beer made, it's all about the highest quality brew and reputation that a small family owned brewery can have.
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.
And, as always, wine, sangria and Bud Light will be flowing!
Face Painting and Henna tattoos are available for all ages (for a small fee to the artist), 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 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!
