Rockin’ Independence Eve – CANCELLED

RIE Logo

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and guidelines for large gatherings, the Rockin’ Independence Eve event for 2020 has been cancelled.

Celebrate our nation’s independence a day early at Rockin’ Independence Eve, a free, family-oriented event that’s fun for all ages. This All-American event in Old Town Winchester is held on July 3rd and attracts thousands of people each year.

Back by popular demand is the band Souled Out at the Taylor Pavilion between the Loudoun Street Mall and the Braddock Autopark. This band plays in and around the region and loves getting the crowd to their feet. Also, enjoy the beer and wine garden that benefits the SPCA, listen to the amazing harmonies of a barbershop quartet, and sign up early to participate in the Old Town Hamburger Eating contest.

Numerous family activities will be located throughout the Loudoun Street Mall, primarily near the Splash Pad. There will be fun for the young and young at heart all along the Loudoun Street Mall!

WHEN: July 3
TIME: 5:00 – 11:00 pm
WHERE: Old Town Winchester and the Taylor Pavilion
COST: Free
HOSTED BY: City of Winchester, Old Town Winchester, Parks and Recreation
