The Round Hill Hometown Festival committee has voted unanimously to cancel this year’s Festival (which was postponed until Oct. 10). While it saddens us to have to do so, we feel it is the only responsible decision at this time. We look forward to the day when we can all get together safely and celebrate our community again.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Corona virus, the 18th Annual Hometown Festival is postponed until Columbus Day weekend, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10. We will all be looking forward to The Best Day of the Year in Round Hill…just a few months later than usual.
Take the night off from cooking Saturday and join us for our community
feast in the Town Park. Starting at 5 p.m. you will have your choice of
items from Wood Fired Foods, Mrs. K’s BBQ and the Mt. Zion Baptist
Church’s Annual Fish Fry.
Quench your thirst with beer from Lost Rhino or wine and cider from the Winery at Kindred Pointe. ID required; cash only, please.
Then top your dinner off with a sweet selection of items from the Round Hill United Methodist Church bake sale or an ice-cold concoction from Frozen Stuff on a Stick.
The Round Hill Hometown Festival activities are centered around the Round Hill Town Park on East Loudoun Street. All activities, with the exception of the 5k — which starts and finishes at Round Hill Elementary School on Evening Star Drive — are within easy walking distance of the park.
The parade progresses south down Main Street to end at the Town Park; the Downhill Derby is on North Locust Street, about a quarter mile west of the park. The Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department is on Main Street within sight of the park.
Parking in “downtown” is very limited, so we encourage residents who can walk or bike to the Festival to do so. For those who must drive, parking is available at the Round Hill United Methodist Church and Round Hill Baptist Church, both on West Loudoun Street.
We ask that the parking lot behind Tammy’s Diner be limited to those needing handicapped access.
Thank you and enjoy the Festival tomorrow!
We’re glad you asked!
