We love dogs. But there are several reasons why we can’t let them in the seating area. However, we do have a second terrace level just beyond the seating area and if you would rather be with your pet than without, we can invite you to sit with your dog down there still well within easy hearing and sight of the stage.

BAR & GRILL: The Second Draft Bistro will offer a bar with a great selection of local, craft beer from the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail, wine from Barren Ridge Vineyards, and cider, along with a fresh menu off the grill. Come hungry and enjoy classics like macaroni salad, burgers, pulled pork and baked beans. Our menu has something for everyone and is best enjoyed with a cold drink. (Sorry but no outside food or beverage can be allowed.)

WEATHER ADVISORY: Everything that is great about being outdoors also means that weather happens. Sometimes it supports what we are doing, sometimes it doesn’t. Fortunately, the new Blackburn Conference Center and Spa has a beautiful Great Hall that can serve as a backup indoor location if inclement weather forces us to relocate. That determination will be made at 5 pm on the day of the event. Many activities can continue in a light rain/mist or after an afternoon rain. SummerStage maintains a strict safety policy to suspend performances in heavy rain or if lightning strikes within a three mile radius of the Blackburn. If necessary, SummerStage will attempt up to two 20 minute rain delays before cancellation.
