Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center is a great shopping center to visit but what makes them unique from other retail centers in the region is that they tie in events and fun entertainment making it a wonderful shopping and dining destination for families, date night or any occasion.
“We have become a part of your entertainment schedule with our events,” said Anastasia Paszkiewicz, Property Manager for Stonebridge. “And now with the addition of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, it’s even better. We love being a part of the Woodbridge community!”
Some of Stonebridge’s larger events like the tree lighting, the Taste of Woodbridge, and Petoberfest draw in over 1,200 shoppers to the center.
They also hold summer family events that are a go-to destination for many local families looking for some fun entertainment. Their Movie Under the Stars series runs from mid-May through mid-September when they show a family friendly movie on a big screen. “We encourage families to bring blanket/chairs and watch a great line of movies all summer long,” said Paszkiewicz.
Also running from May through September, Stonebridge has their Summer Concert Series with live music in front of Orvis. The Summer Concert Series is a fun event for families, date nights, or neighborhood meet-ups.
“People get excited about the events and we always add something new each year as far as entertainment,” said Karen Joyner, President of KOJAM Productions, Inc. which helps produce some of the events at Stonebridge. “The Fall Festival and Chili Cookoff is a blast because anyone can sign up to participate and we also have the local fire fighters competing against each other. It has created a sense of camaraderie within the Prince William area- we love it!”
Their Facebook page is full of positive reviews from locals as well as visitors from out of state that loved the Stonebridge restaurants and shops like Duck Donuts, Black & White, and DSW. With over 20 shops and nearly 20 service shops like dentists, spas, salons, and dry cleaners, and 14 restaurants, including a locally owned brewery, there is plenty for visitors to check out at Stonebridge. “The stores often support the events by offering discounts that day and alot of the restaurants have tents for the tasting event,” said Joyner. “They are very passionate about their support.” Be sure to check Stonebridge out for yourself and visit stonebridgeptc.com to see a list of stores, restaurants, and upcoming events.
