Public Programs

The National Sporting Library and Museum provides several monthly programs, many of which are free to the public.

Open Late

Our 2017 Open Late concert series was the greatest yet!  Please join us again next year for great music and family fun on the last Friday of the month, May - August. Concerts and Museum admission are free and open to the public 6:00-8:00pm. Picnics are welcome but no glass containers or outside alcohol is permitted. Cash bar wine and beer.

Open Late concerts are made possible in part by a grant from the Town of Middleburg, the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
