Visit the 29th Annual Virginia Wine and Craft Festival in Front Royal, Virginia

ymnv_qRq_400x400Every year, spring is accompanied by a huge variety of outdoor festivals with everything from live music to historic gardens to wine tasting. Speaking of wine tasting, there’s one upcoming festival in Front Royal, Virginia that will be offering its patrons a change to taste some Virginia vintages and peruse the wares of talented craft vendors. Now in its 29th year, the Annual Virginia Wine and Craft Festival is set for Saturday May 16, 2015, starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.: “Covering more than 7 seven blocks and featuring over 100 vendors, artists and crafters from all over the east coast, there won’t be anything you can’t find to fit your style, mood or need… Fine handmade jewelry, hand painted wine glasses, hand crafted musical instruments, pottery and ceramics, clothing, original paintings and artwork, antiques, the list goes on.”

But if you think that wine and crafts are the only festival offerings, then you’ll be delighted to hear about all of the food! Feast on funnel cakes, crabcake sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, shish kabobs and more. Between the food and the wine tasting, you’ll certainly be full and satisfied at the Virginia Wine and Craft Festival.

Another Fun Mountain Jamboree at Massanutten Resort

“Dance the night away at the 5th annual Mountain Jamboree festival. Every year so far has been packed full of surprises, with plenty of live music, food vendors, and drinks in the beer garden!” (Massanutten Resort).

Summer break is winding down for many people. As soon as August hits, many will be returning to school and jobs, leaving behind the getaways of summer vacation. You may need a pick-me-up by the end of August, and if that’s the case, then we recommend a BBHSV getaway complete with a Mountain Jamboree Festival in McGaheysville, VA.

The 5th Annual Mountain Jamboree Festival promises a wealth of enjoyment. Enjoy the lively music of the Blind Owl Band, Hot Day at the Zoo, and The Larry Keel Experience. Sip a glass of wine or beer (or both!) in the comfort of the Beer Garden. Enjoy a performance by the Dogtown Hoop Mafia, a hoop dance troupe that hails from Richmond, Virginia. If you find yourself tired after the festivities, stop by Massanutten’s spa tent for a seated chair massage. Finally, end your day with a thrilling display of fireworks, beginning at 10 p.m. and presented by Zambelli fireworks.
