JUNE 18-25, 2016
These are the words we would use to describe the one-and-only Lynchburg Restaurant Week. When this event first launched in 2012, it was an experiment in creative collaboration—a merger of local restaurateurs, Lynchburg Living and community groups. Since then, and due to the public’s incredible enthusiasm and support, Lynchburg Restaurant Week has grown to be a well-loved entity in the Central Virginia region.
Presented by Lynchburg Living, this event is is unlike any other in our area, featuring only local, home-grown eateries and benefiting the important work of local, nonprofit organizations, we’ve found a way to provide the public with great food at unbeatable prices all while helping a great cause.
Speaking of the food, you have an abundance of choices among the special prix fixe menus. View all of the menus in our May/June issue of Lynchburg Living, so you can take your time to pore over each one and flag your top choices. You can also view the menus by clicking the “Restaurants” tab above.
For the 5th year in a row, Lynchburg Restaurant Week is bringing fabulous food to the greater Lynchburg region. With more than 25 participating restaurants and a variety of delicious courses to choose from, we invite you to view all of the menus and start making plans for June 18. Don’t miss a thing by following us on Facebook at “Lynchburg Restaurant Week;” you may even catch some giveaway opportunities!
This year for the first time, we’re working with the Academy Center of the Arts as our nonprofit partner. This collaboration highlights two things that bring our community together—food and art. The Academy has been integral in promoting the cultural development and revitalization of our region. If you didn’t know, they have 18 programs all oriented around arts education and economic development with the goal of improving the quality of life for all citizens.
A quick snapshot of current Academy projects includes:
• Hill City Keys
• Partnerships—such as benefit concerts—with other local nonprofits
• First Fridays, which allows free gallery visits to the public
• Scholarships for local youth to attend art classes and camps
• City Strings
• Youth Art Shows… and much more!
