Over the last several months, new eateries like Founding Farmers and Sweet Leaf Cafe have opened up shop in Reston Station Plaza.

Now, as summer approaches, the open-air plaza will be the home of “Summerbration,” a free summer concert and entertainment series. The event is intended to activate the space.

The first concert, featuring classic rock band Battery Lane, will take place today from 7-9 p.m. Complimentary parking is available from 6:30-9:30 p.m. for the concert series. Attendees should follow signs to ParkX.

The complete line-up is below:

The event, which is free and open for all ages, is hosted by Reston Station and presented by Reston Community Center in cooperation with MSE Productions, Inc.

    Activate the space.

    That’s a good one!

      It’s a strangely sterile wide but disjointed space. It’s ugly. Reminds me of 1980s China. I am surprised that Founding Fathers manages to do so well. I don’t think anyone else is doing well in that space. But Hudgins says she’s making things happen.

        Went to that Founding Farmers for the first time a couple weeks ago. I believe they offer validated parking at anytime, up to two hours. We were there in the evening when they did. We were not in a rush. Drink at the bar first then a casual dinner. Went over our 2 hour allotment by a few minutes and when exiting the exit parking fee booth required $4.50. You cannot pay at the booth, you must pay somewhere inside. Fortunately an employee of the garage was leaving in the other lane and he jumped out and swiped his card which allowed us to leave without having to back out of the lanes and seek a parking payment machine.

    I’m sure this place will be boycotted due to paid parking like RTC, so I don’t expect the space to see much activity.
