Organizers Make Rain Plans for Purcellville Music & Arts Festival, but Show will Go On

The Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board is determined not to let Saturday’s rainy forecast spoil the Music & Arts Festival.

Rain or shine, event will go on, but organizers’ concern about saturated soils has prompted a shift in layout. The parking lot at Fireman’s Field will be closed entirely to vehicles and instead will be used for concert and vendor space. The Bush Tabernacle will house the juried art show as well as vendors whose wares would suffer in wet weather conditions.

Parking will be set up in the following areas, with continuous shuttle service provided: Loudoun Valley Community Center, 320 W. School St.; Emerick Elementary School, 400 S. Nursery Ave.; public parking lots on Main Street (next to Catoctin Creek Distillery), and at 21st Street; and Loudoun Valley High School, 340 N. Maple Ave.

The “Painting with Wine and Coffee” event is being moved to the Train Station on North 21st Street. To preregister for the class, go to

There are no changes to the entertainment schedule, and the Purcellville Business Association-sponsored trolley tours through town will continue as scheduled—leaving from the Bush Tabernacle every 30 minutes.
