Music. Food. Friends. All under the canopy of the Shenandoah Valley stars.

Sitting on lawn


Can I bring my own food or drinks? Unfortunately, no. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The Blackburn will have a full bar and grill on the lawn to get you your favorite draft or a burger and fries.

Are tickets available at the door? Advance reservations are suggested. If tickets are available, they will be sold for $40 at the door.

I have a party of five, what do I do? The pod system is designed for adequate social distancing, if your party is more than four, you should purchase two blanket pods.

What is the weather policy? In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved indoors to the Blackburn Inn and Conference Center’s Great Hall. This decision will be made day of by 5 pm.
