Silver Line Music and Food Truck Fest
On Saturday, September 13, more than 20 food trucks will descend near the Tysons Corner stop on the Metro’s new Silver Line for an afternoon of noshing. Guests can pair snacks from the likes of DC Empanadas and BONMi with a selection of beer and wine starting at noon. Then, they’ll unfurl picnic blankets and snap open lawn chairs as more than eight bands take the stage, serenading crowds with music in genres from smooth rock to bluegrass. At 8 p.m., pop-country headliners Green River Ordinance will cap off the fest with performances of folky tunes that may include hits “Come On” and “Flying.”
Tysons Fall Harvest
It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.
Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
