Warm Sunshine...Light Breeze...Laughter fills the air... These are all signs that the 27th Annual Virginia Wine and Craft Festival is just around the corner. Join us on Saturday, May 18, 2013 in historic downtown Front Royal, Virginia for a day of shopping, kids games and of course, wine tasting. The festival gates open at 10 a.m. with activities and musical entertainment all day until 6 p.m.
Come and enjoy tastings from 20 Virginia wineries.
Covering more than 7 seven blocks and featuring over 100 vendors, artists and crafters from all over the east coast, there wonât be anything you canât 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.
Not to be outdone by the wineries and crafters, the food vendors are coming out in full force. With over a dozen to choose from, deciding whether to have funnel cakes, fresh roasted nuts, crabcake sandwiches, steak-n-cheese, shish kabobs, or just burgers and dogs may take you the whole day. Several restaurants will also be open during the festival in case you prefer to sit and rest a bit while you eat.
Music fills the air throughout the day at either end of Main Street.
Admission is $20.00 in advance or $25 at the gate for those who wish to wine taste. Advance tickets can be purchased in a number of ways; you can visit the Chamber of Commerce at 106 Chester Street, Front Royal or the Front Royal Visitor Center at 414 E. Main Street, Front Royal.
