Upcoming events

Mars Great Meadow International: Aug. 22-25

Established in 2015, the Great Meadow International is a three-day eventing competition held annually at the Great Meadow Foundation in The Plains, Virginia. In addition to the international equestrian competition, the event features VIP hospitality, a trade fair, beer garden, and entertainment for the whole family. The 2019 Great Meadow International will take place Aug. 22-25.

Now in its fifth year, the Great Meadow International (GMI) has been repackaged into a larger competitor and spectator-based event offering three levels of international competition. The event features Olympic-level riders and horses in what can best be described as an equestrian triathlon. In addition to the equestrian competition, the 2019 GMI will highlight all things related to our canine companions. Leashed dogs are welcome and can enjoy amenities including a “VIP” (“Very Important Pooch”) cooling tent with swag, treat samples and more especially for your best four-legged friend. Other additions to the event schedule include canine demonstrations and dog-friendly programming and educational events for the whole family.

Tickets to GMI are available here. All grounds admission tickets to GMI include general parking and admission to the venue and Meadow Market vendor village featuring live entertainment, a beer garden, tasty offerings from top local food trucks, and family-friendly games. Tickets also include admission to the Demonstration Station featuring exciting and educational demonstrations. For those seeking options featuring premier Virginia hospitality, special ringside boxes, tailgates and tables in the VIP pavilion are also available.

The Art of War: The Civil War Sketches of James E. Taylor at the Mosby Heritage Area Association: Aug. 24 | 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

As Union forces advanced into the Shenandoah Valley in 1864 they were accompanied by James E. Taylor, a sketch artist working for Leslie’s Illustrated. During his time with Sheridan’s army, Taylor brought the war to life with his detailed sketches that covered all aspects of military life and the surrounding countryside.

Join the Mosby Heritage Area Association for a bus tour that follows in the path of the artist. You will visit some of the locations sketched by Taylor and compare how much these views have changed since 1864. Artists are welcome to bring along a sketch pad and try their hand at recreating these scenes as they appear today!

Bus departs MHAA office at 1461 Atoka Rd., Marshall, VA at 9 a.m.

Lunch included. Seats are limited so reserve your seat today! Get your tickets at mosbyheritagearea.org.
