A FREE & FAMILY FRIENDLY
Celebrating Five Years of Serving Radford !
DUE TO COVID-19 WEST END WEDNESDAYS WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL SUMMER 2021
One of our favorite parts of West End Wednesdays is to enjoy the company of our amazing neighbors & community. We pride ourselves on bringing local live entertainment, vendors, food & drink while showcasing & supporting local businesses & organizations, all in a family friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We value your health & safety and will return to Glencoe Mansion when the time is right. Until then - we love and miss you and are excited to return Summer 2021!
West End Wednesdays is free summer concert series on the grassy nook of the Glencoe Mansion’s lawn. Enjoy family & friends, network with young professionals, and show your support for all things local in our community! We feature local talent with our concert series, bringing you foot-tapping music and entertainment. On-site food provided by local vendors or food trucks.
WEW was created in 2016 by a group of passionate individuals who wanted to see a new lively, family friendly, and free event in our home town. We began as a pilot program under the Radford Chamber of Commerce and in 2018 WEW became an independent event solely ran and organized by MountainTrotter along with a dedicated group of volunteers. We're able to maintain this event with the financial help of our sponsors & partners, with the assistance of the Radford Heritage Foundation, and from the generous donations from you, our community!
We encourage you to come out and enjoy the summer evenings with us! Bring a lawn chair, a blanket, or pull up a piece of shady grass! Bring your favorite game, relax, and enjoy! Our events are FAMILY & DOG FRIENDLY! No outside alcohol is allowed; ID required for all alcohol purchases; some vendors are cash only.
From Americana to Rock & Roll, from budding artists to local favorites - there's always live music at West End Wednesdays! These local & regional musicians fill the summer evening air with good tunes, entertainment, and a lot of positive energy! Make sure to follow @RadfordWEW on Facebook for upcoming musicians
FOOD, DRINK & FRIENDS
West End Wednesdays is a family friendly atmosphere, perfect for pulling up a lawn chair or blanket and enjoying the summer evening with family and friends new & old. WEW offers on-site food trucks & dessert vendors at each event along with craft canned beer, wine, and seltzers.
