10-year celebration!

Fri & Sat, June 21-22

11:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Rising Silo turns 10 this year! We're celebrating with a special tethered hot air balloon visit from Blue Ridge Ballooning (*weather-dependent*), a Barrel Bar set up for a tasting of several barrel-aged and -fermented brews, our tradition of free ice cream floats (while supplies last!), and live music on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Tethered hot air balloon Friday & Saturday 7 - 8:30 PM

Rides are $20/person and limited to approximately 60 people each night. The hot air balloon floats are highly dependent upon weather-conditions, thus tickets will only be available for sale in the taproom day-of at 5 PM, first-come, first-serve. Each ride lasts ~5 minutes; 3 to 5 people per ride dependent on combined weight. Recommended for ages 7+. No alcohol or intoxicated riders will be allowed on balloon ride.

Hot air balloon "walkabout" tentatively scheduled for Saturday from 1 - 3:30 PM (view-only inflated balloon!)

**The balloon will be staged at "Potato Hill" - a spacious field of Glade Road Growing Farm that is approximately a 1/2 mile, 15-20 minute walk from the barn and parking lot. 

Free ice cream floats served Saturday beginning at 11am *while supplies last! 

Attic Static - Friday at 6 PM "roots, rock, soul, pop, blues"

YUNG LZRD Saturday at 6 PM "hip jazz"
