Loudoun County invites the community to join in a free celebration of the opening of the Silver Line Metrorail extension Saturday, November 19, 2022, 12:00 – 3:00 p.m., at Loudoun Station, 43751 Central Station Drive in Ashburn. 

Loudoun County and Comstock are co-hosting the “The Silver Line Metro Celebration,” a free, family-friendly street festival, which will include live music by The Legwarmers, food trucks and activities for all ages, such as balloon artists, glitter tattoos, moon bounce, touch-a-truck and bus and more. In addition, Loudoun County government agencies, Metro and community partners will be on hand at the festival with informational resources and giveaways. 

Members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and other officials will take the event’s main stage at 1:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of the Silver Line. The event is open to everyone and provides an opportunity to learn more about the arrival of Metrorail in Loudoun County, including how to ride Metro, access Silver Line bus routes and commuting options, as well as entertain the whole family on a Saturday afternoon.

The festival comes just days after the long-awaited opening of the Silver Line Metrorail extension in Loudoun November 15, and the beginning of passenger service to and from the three new Metrorail stations in Loudoun — the Ashburn, Loudoun Gateway and Dulles Airport stations. The celebration is taking place in the Loudoun Station community, which is adjacent to the new Ashburn Metrorail Station.
