Cheers, the weekend is here. Kick it off with cider in hand on the beautiful Castle Hill grounds. Our 600 acres are the perfect retreat, so gather your family (yes, we’re kid-friendly!) and friends to join us for live music and a local food truck on the second and fourth Fridays throughout the summer.
Friday, August 23rd
Mouth Wide Open Food Truck
5:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Live Music by Red and the Romantics
6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Red & the Romantics' music has been described as Americana & Roots, though the sound is diverse. Crossing over several genres, the songs are original and written by Erik "Red" Knierim. With the blues master- Steve Riggs on bass, the colorful guitar playing of Steve Vargo, Billy Edmonds the guitar extraordinaire, the gypsy, gospel inspired melodies of Betty Jo Dominick's accordion and the musical drumbeat of Dan Barrale. There is a dancing feel, then there is a poetic side, and always a joyful groove. A Charlottesville based band since 2011, Red & the Romantics is a good vibration that appeals to the young and old.

New this year: we will be partnering with charitable organizations for each instance of Friday Cheers, and donating 10% of cider sales during the times of the event. Plus, the organization will be on hand with information so you can learn more about the great work they do for our community. Our partner for August 23 is Changing Tides.
Changing Tides, as an evolution of Seeds for Kindness, is dedicated to sharing and spreading kindness by giving back to our communities and to the earth. The products we offer — upcycled, repurposed, reimagined — are both environmentally conscious and financially supportive to important environmental organizations making an impact. 10% of cider sales for the August 23rd Friday Cheers will be directly donated to the Ocean Conservancy.
