Over the past seven years, the Randolph Civic Association has held our springtime RCA Music Fest, which serves as an informal fundraiser for local efforts including entrance sign landscaping, community cleanup days, and neighborhood events. From Rock and Jazz to Folk, from singer-songwriter creations to ethnic music, we have it all at the RCA Music Fest. This annual family-friendly event features performances by the many talented musicians who live right here in the community.

For the first time, we are planning Music Fest as an outdoor event at our new civic green- located on the grassy area at the entrance to the Randolph Hills Shopping Center. In addition to live music, come for local craft brews, food, activities and refreshments for kids as well.

Winter Beer Garden Pictures

By most measures, our first Beer Garden event this past Saturday was very successful.  The beers and air were cold, but the bonfires and neighborly smiles were warm.  Thank you to our friends at 7 Locks Brewing, True Respite Brewing, and Cafe 2020 Korean Kitchen + Bar for helping make this event possible.

RSVP to the Facebook Event

During October’s Placemaking Festival, the RCA was approached by True Respite Brewing Company to partner with them on a winter beer garden festival. The RCA board were enthusiastic about making this idea a reality. With the new firepits, furniture, and trees in place, the brewers and the RCA saw the green space on the edge of the Randolph Hills Shopping Center as the perfect place for such an event.

The RCA is excited about this new partnership, as it is a fantastic opportunity to pick up where the Placemaking Festival left off. The fire pits and awesome furniture are still on site at the corner of Rocking Horse Rd and Boiling Brook Pkwy, begging to be used for another exciting festival. So mark your calendars: on Saturday, February 9th from 3pm to 8pm, come have a beer or two or three with your neighbors around the fire pit. In addition to True Respite, neighborhood hangouts 7 Locks Brewing, Cafe and 2020 Korean Kitchen + Bar will also be at the event.

So bundle up, bring the family, and come enjoy the crisp winter air. Keep an eye on this website, our Facebook page, and Nextdoor for additional details as we draw closer to the event!

Better Block Festival

From October 11th through 14th, the Randolph Hills Shopping Center is going to be the site of a “placemaking event” organized by Better Block Foundation, Montgomery County Planning Department, and the Randolph Civic Association. This will be an opportunity to re-imagine what the shopping center could be though community engagement, ideas, and participation.  Culminating in a two day festival featuring food vendors, kids activities, and live music, it is sure to be a lively event and an exciting opportunity for RCA-land!
