International Women’s Day at Lake Anne Plaza, Reston

Join us on Friday, March 8th for International Women’s Day as we raise awareness and celebrate the achievement of the women who have made the iconic Lake Anne Plaza what it is today. An appropriate location for such a day given 75% of all businesses on the plaza are owned and operated by women. Friday evening, come to learn and share at the kick-off reception at the Jo Ann Rose Gallery (1609 Washington Plaza). Hear first-hand from past and present female leaders in the community about personal experiences as business owners, stories of Lake Anne and visions for years ahead.

Complimentary to the conversation, enjoy the photography exhibit by local photographer, Charlotte Geary along with vintage photos from the Reston Historic Trust & Museum. Light fare and refreshments provided. Donations from the sale of limited edition Commemorate Posters will benefit Shelter House, a community based non-profit organization that provides crisis intervention, safe housing, and supportive services to homeless families and victims of domestic violence.

Continue the celebration through Sunday with shop and eatery special promotions and a variety of music performances, art exhibitions, book signings and more. The 1st Annual International Women’s Day Celebration at Lake Anne is provided by the Lake Anne Merchants and Professionals Committee.

About Lake Anne Plaza
Lake Anne Plaza is the historic “heart and soul” of Reston, Virginia and the center of local living in our community. Reminiscent of a European coastal village where people live, work and play, this spectacular community nestled around a lake, is one of the few places in Northern Virginia where you can dine or shop at independently owned establishments. From our fine restaurants to unique boutiques to the seasonal official Reston Farmer’s Market, Lake Anne Plaza embodies the best of living local.
A destination spot for residents and visitors alike, Lake Anne prides itself on being internationally recognized as one of the finest examples of the modern planned community. Lake Anne architecture has graced the cover of dozens of national and international magazines.
