Join us for the new Concerts at Salubria Series!
This summer, The Germanna Foundation will present a new concert series, Sunsets at Salubria, featuring six of the region's best bands.
The concerts will be on the first Sunday of each month, from May through October, on the grounds of the historic Salubria manor, seven miles east of Culpeper, VA on Salubria Lane off of Route 3. The gates will open at 4:00 pm, and the music will start two hours before sunset.
We invite music and history fans of all ages to bring a picnic supper, folding chairs and enjoy the evening 'rocking the boxwoods' with music by recent recipients of Washington Area Music Awards (WAMIES).
Admission is $15.00 for adults, $5.00 for Germanna Foundation members and students. Children under 12 are free. All proceeds will support the Germanna Foundation's research and restoration projects at historic Salubria.
