2. Christ Church Children’s Consignment Sale

Weather’s changing. Thankfully, we all have this epic consignment sale to help us outfit our never-not-growing kids without landing the fam in the poor house.

3. Free-for-All 10 Marching Band Demonstration

It’s battle of the bands…marching bands that is. J.R. Tucker High School’s Marching Tigers play host to more than 20 high school bands for a full day of performances. I feel confident in saying that most young kids will find this to be absolutely delightful.

Slip on those running shoes and help support Agriculture in the Classroom, an organization dedicated to teaching Virginia’s children about the importance of agriculture. The kids’ 1K fun run will kick things off, followed by a 5K for adults. Once you cross that finish line, stick around for the after-party and enjoy food, live music, and beer from Center of the Universe Brewing Company.

  • Saturday, September 20th • 4:00 — 7:00 PM
  • Virginia Farm Bureau Building, 12580 West Creek Boulevard
  • $20 until September 18th; walk-up registration is $30 (kids’ run is free)
