Come celebrate the best of Virginia’s customs, cultures, and cuisines at a weekend long festival featuring orchards, farmers, musicians, oyster farms, craftspeople, and wine. Guests are invited to taste and sample all that the festival has to offer, and to really enjoy a more traditional glimpse into Virginia’s Heritage.

The Cabin Raiders will perform the“Old Timey” music of the Commonwealth, a musical style which preceded Blue Grass and which is celebrated around the country at festivals and in small dance halls and gatherings. Locally sourced foods, such as oysters from the Chesapeake and meats and artisanal cheeses from local farms and markets will reflect the culinary experiences that have been served on Virginia’s tables for centuries.

We Still BeLEIGHve
7403 Academic Avenue, Nokesville | 12 – 7pm

We hope to come together to support the Leigh family. The Leigh family is local to Warrenton, VA. They currently have two children, suffering from two different types of cancer. Their oldest son, Kaleb, is currently fighting his third round of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Their youngest son, Noah, is currently in remission from osteosarcoma. The costs associated with having two children go through cancer treatment are astronomical. Please join the community for live music, performances from various local groups, a huge silent auction, vendors, many children’s activities, a visit with Santa, and SO MUCH MORE!
