Vintage Virginia Apples Annual Harvest Festival
Vintage Virginia Apples Annual Harvest Festival

Sponsored by Vintage Virginia Apples and the CoveGarden Ruritan Club, our festival features the diverse bounty of the apple crop and the heritage of apple-growing in Southern Albemarle County. This event includes displays of crafts and skills of yesteryear, apples for tasting and purchase, old-fashioned apple butter cooking over a slow fire, cider pressing, hay rides over the nearby ridge, and instruction on growing your own fruit. Again, this year, we will feature tours through the Cidery and events in our Tasting Room. Come join us for a beautiful fall day in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. Open Event: Free Admission.

Jim Waive has long entertained the crowds at Vintage Virginia Apples' annual Havest Festival, and we're delighted to have him performing on our cozy patio this Saturday. "Waive combines his no-pick, percussive style on guitar with some of the most compelling lyrics in honky tonk."  Cider and live music- what better way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon?!
