Free Summer Concerts & Wine Tastings this July and August

The Fairfax County Park Authority will host free summer concerts in the backyard of the Fairfax County Government Center every Thursday night this July and August (July 5 – August 30, 2018) from 5:30pm – 7pm. The Evenings on the Ellipse summer concert series is a family-friendly event featuring a talented line-up of performers and a wide range of musical genres. Fairfax County’s two wineries, Paradise Springs Winery and The Winery at Bull Run, will be providing generous tastings and sales of their premium reds and whites. A Farmers Market (open from 2:30pm – 6:30pm) will also be on site selling fresh fruit and savory snacks to enjoy at the concert. The concert and farmers market are both held rain or shine. If it rains, the concert will be moved inside to the Fairfax County Government Center Forum.

“Evenings on the Ellipse is a great way for nearby residents and county employees to relax and unwind after work in Wolf Trap-esque style,” Chairman Sharon Bulova said. “With great music, a beautiful outdoor venue, wine tastings and a farmers market, I am proud to have the Fairfax County Government Center play host to such a special summer experience.”

Evenings on the Ellipse is one of many concert series happening throughout Fairfax County this summer. Find more concerts and performances at
