INTRIGUE AND EXCITEMENT AWAIT FOR 
CIRQUE DU FLOYD ON AUGUST 19 

In our ongoing search for unique programming at Chantilly Farm, we’re looking forward to presenting a lineup of incredibly talented performance artists that will dazzle and delight both the young and young at heart on August 19. We’ve drawn inspiration from the sideshows and circus arts of an earlier time and blended those with more modern cirque-style acrobatic performance arts in an effort to create something that is truly one-of-a-kind in our community. We welcome all to come and join us for what is sure to be a spectacular experience that you’ll be talking about long after the closing performances of the evening.

The highlight of this first-year event will be an evening performance from the New York City-based internationally acclaimed aerial cirque troop, ImaginAerial, at 8pm on the main stage. Preceding their performance, attendees will be wowed by fire performance artists, DanceAfire Productions. 

Get ready for roaming performers of all types, live musicians, delicious local food, craft beer and wine, and free circus arts/acro-yoga workshops. If you’re interested in a night of performance, wonder and whimsy, step right up and get excited for August 19th!

All advance ticket holders have the opportunity to tent camp on Saturday evening for free. Click the link below to learn more and save big by getting your tickets today.

COSMIC CHARLIE: A TRIBUTE TO THE GRATEFUL DEAD AT CHANTILLY FARM ON SEPTEMBER 16 

A highlight of the Buses at Chantilly VW Campout Weekend. Get out those tie-dyes and be prepared to experience the legendary music of The Grateful Dead in the beautiful surroundings of the natural outdoor amphitheater at Chantilly Farm.

Featuring COSMIC CHARLIE: A tribute to The Grateful Dead

Cosmic Charlie was born in the musical Mecca of Athens, Georgia. From its summer 1999 inception, the band has been swiftly cementing its reputation as a band that puts a unique and personal twist on the Grateful Dead catalogue, a Dead cover band for folks that are ambivalent about Dead cover bands. Rather than mimicking the Dead exactly, Cosmic Charlie chooses to tap into the Dead’s energy and style as a foundation on which to build. The result is healthy balance of creativity and tradition, and both the band and its audience are taken to that familiar edge with the sense that, music is actually being MADE here tonight.

Gates open: 6:00pm  Showtime: 7:30pm

$12 advance, $15 at the gate. Kids 12 and under are free.

Great local food from Bootleg BBQ and Grateful Bread.

Please bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating.
No pets. No coolers. Beer and wine garden available featuring local wines and craft brews.
