We feature a full schedule of entertainment on three stages with acts for the whole family, so there is always something to listen to and watch.Our three stages each have a different focus: 

  • The Herndon Municipal Center (HMC) Stage features headline performers during the late afternoon and evening hours.
  • The Cafe Stage features local and regional singer/songwriters.
  • The Depot Stage features headline performers of regional and national acclaim during the evening hours. Saturday afternoon you can enjoy a variety of up and coming rising stars and Sunday enjoy past cafe performers in our Amped-Up program.


Fireworks displays will happen on Thursday, June 1 and Saturday, June 3. Start looking skyward around 9:30pm.

While most events and activities are held rain or shine, in the rare event of severe weather, the Festival may close temporarily and then re-open. To check the status of Festival events, call 703-435-6866.
