Fireworks In The Sky Over A Lake

Summer Celebration Series

Local: Music, Food, Drinks and More!

Our annual Summer Celebration Series is bigger and better than ever with the addition of more music and more nights to spend in the outdoors with a drink in hand. Starting April 6 with our inaugural First Thursday event and running all the way through October 5, this is the place to be for summer gatherings in Charlottesville. This year's lineup includes fun with live music, fireworks, food trucks, local beer and wine vendors and a host of outdoor games. It's going to be a great summer!

The skies light up three times during Summer Celebration Series, and everyone is invited to bring a lawn chair and celebrate summer! On the Sunday of Memorial Day and Independence Day weekends, an electrifying fireworks show will reflect off the waters of Heritage Lake. Bring a lawn chair and an appetite for fun because we'll be serving up live music, age-appropriate drinks and local food from some of C'ville's finest mobile food vendors. 

Most events are held outdoors on the green with beautiful views of Heritage Lake. Inclement weather updates will be posted on our Facebook page.

Events will take place on The Green. Look for the giant, white circus-style tent located behind the spa. There is free parking and our food and beverage team will have options for light fare and and drinks appropriate for adults and children. Each event will also have mouth-watering mobile fare featuring some of C'ville's finest food trucks. Outside food and beverage are not permitted. As always, we welcome leashed pets and encourage guests to bring a lawn chair or outdoor blanket. 

With all of the festivities throughout the summer, we invite you to enjoy one of our luxurious rooms that are within walking distance of our festival grounds. A stay at Boar's Head also allows you to take advantage of our spa, sports club, golf course, on-site dining and more.
