Come out to Verrado’s Main Street on November 9th to help us celebrate our newest district, Victory at Verrado! We will be hosting an all day celebration to commemorate this exciting landmark in Verrado’s history. Start the day by centering your mind and exercising your body with yoga in the Village Commons, then stroll through the farmers market and select some of the fresh produce from our own local farmers. When you’ve found your healthy treasures, come grab a glass of wine and meander through the fine art expo and wine tasting on Main Street. As if that wasn’t enough, you can dance away the afternoon to live music featuring nationally and locally renowned jazz artists such as Marion Meadows and Big Pete Pearson on two different stages. When your feet get tired, head up to the Raven patio and enjoy a front row seat to the firework finale. Now that’s what we call a Victory Party!
