Jul 4, 11:00am - Jul 4, 9:00pm

Clifton Forge Main Street

Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

On July 4th, we will begin the day-long celebration with a Down Town parade at 11 am. We urge you to come out and enjoy the parade or even be in it.

As this is a small town celebration in the best sense of the word, we are hoping that many of our young people will hop on the bikes, carry a flag or wear something red, white and blue and march or ride in the parade.

At the conclusion of the parade everyone is invited to gather at the Town Hall steps for a special ceremony honoring our Veterans.Following a reading of excerpts from the Declaration of Independence at the Town Hall steps we encourage you to follow our bagpipers on a short walk to the Masonic Amphitheatre for an afternoon concert by the Silverbacks and a picnic lunch. Children can enjoy getting their face painted.

At 6 PM, the grounds of the C & O Heritage Center open to the public, free of charge, for an evening of informal fun, food and festivities. Back by popular demand are Henry Downing Band and the 50 member Celebration Choir presenting a Patriotic Cantata.

This outstanding presentation will include a Retreat of the Colors. An awesome fireworks display will take place at dusk to close out the day-long celebration.

Jack Mason's Tavern has created a special beer in honor of The Historic Masonic Theatre's 113th birthday (July is the Theatre's birthday month). The beer is called CURTAIN CALL SUMMER ALE.

While it lasts, a percentage of all sales of this original brew will be donated to the theatre.

The Theatre is celebrating its birthday with a STEAL THE PINT Night. On July 7, starting at 5pm, when you buy a CURTAIN CALL SUMMER ALE, it will be served in a pint glass featuring the beer's logo. Once you finish the beer, you take the glass home with you (aka: 'Steal the Pint').

Glass supplies are limited, so be sure to get in early on July 7 to claim yours. Once they're gone, they're gone. Limit one glass per person.

July 7th is the date for you to enjoy a CURTAIN CALL (or two) of your own.
See you there!

VA Opry: The Darell Webb Band

VA Opry: The Darell Webb Band

Jul 7, 8:00pm - Jul 7, 10:00pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre

The Virginia Opry: Celebrate America
featuring The Darrell Webb Band
Saturday, July 7 at 8pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
General Admission: $10 in advance; $12 at the door

The Darrell Webb Band has been hailed in bluegrass circles as having “the perfect blend of traditional and innovation.” Webb celebrated his 20th year in the music industry with the release of “Dream Big” on Mountain Fever Records.

After performing as a vocalist and multi-instrument artist with Ronda Vincent and the Rage, Wildfire, and Michael Cleveland and Flame Keeper, Webb formed his own band in 2009. He promptly released “Bloodline” and followed up with “Breaking Down Barriers.”

Webb is noted for his rich vocals, and the band performs acoustic music that critics have hailed as “electrifying energy beyond traditional boundaries.” Recently, Webb has been featured with Vincent, his long-time friend, on “More.”

“Flying South to Dixie” topped the chart at #1 on Bluegrass Today, a weekly publication. The song featured members of the Grasscals performing with Webb. The
Darrell Webb Band has received numerous nominations for awards at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Awards.

Crossing County Lines, a youth band that is part of the New “Old School” Junior Virginia Opry, will warm up the audience by performing in the Thomas P. Dean/Racey and Dean, Inc. Underground Café at 7:00 p.m. Both The Virginia Opry and the New “Old School” Junior Virginia Opry country music shows are produced by Appalfolks of America, a non-profit organization based in the theatre.
