Leesburg is a happening place, and the arts and entertainment offerings in Town are increasing all the time.
Arts & Cultural District
For over 250 years, the Town of Leesburg has been the original farm-to-market location and cultural hub of Loudoun County.
Today, visitors to Leesburg can tour The Marshall House, the historic home of George C. Marshall, take in the beautiful architecture of the Historic Downtown, wander through galleries filled with the masterful creations of local artisans, bike along the W&OD Trail, relax on the Town Green while listening to live music performances, or dine in one of our award winning restaurants.
Leesburg galleries, shops, restaurants, and cultural venues are working together in the Loudoun Artisan Trail. Creativity and inspiration are sure to be found in Leesburg.
