That’s a wrap, folks! The first day of fall—September 22—brought the final Thursday Evening Sunset event of the 2016 season.

Thursday Evening Sunset Series for Summer 2016

We had perfect weather for the last session of our Thursday Evening Sunset Series for 2016. Way to go out with a bang!

And what a great year it was. Through great weather and not so great weather (we certainly had more than our share of Thursday thunder storms this year!), the community flocked to the mountain for the best sunset view in Charlottesville.

A storm in June just made for an even more spectacular sunset!

What is dinner without a little music? Thank you to the talented local artists who performed throughout the season. Artists included:

  • Folk Medicine – contemporary songs in Old Time and Traditional vocal style
  • Fulltone to the Max – timeless blues and classic rock

  • Greg Ward – vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, and producer – seasoned in his reggae roots
  • Local Vocals – 60s and 70s classic rock
  • Lock Jaw – 5 piece rock and blues cover band
  • Matthew McAllister – independent folk singer/songwriter
  • Oh Wow Boy! – retro Americana

Thank you to everyone who spent their Thursday evenings with us. We’ll see you on the mountain for sunset views, dinner and drinks, and live music next year!

The sunset series may be over, but fall is in full swing on the mountain! Pick your own apples are now in season, and ready-picked pumpkins are available—just in time for Halloween and fall decor.
