Food will be available from Pure Eats. Pure Eats is dedicated to providing the highest quality, locally sourced food in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Our approach is very simple. Our legendary burgers, for example, start with the best ground beef in the world, which happens to come from our Rockbridge County neighbors, the Potter family of Buffalo Creek Beef and Donald's Meats. We then cook it to order with great care, and serve it up in a setting that is comfortable and friendly. The result is maybe just a hamburger, but it's important to us that it be the best.

1pm to 4pm

25th Annual Harvest Festival

Help us celebrate our 25th anniversary with wine tasting, hayrides, grape stomping and live music. Bring the kids and lawn chairs. Admission is $10/person. Current Wine Club Members are free. Vendors will be set up also.

MUSIC BY GREENHOUSE! Greenhouse presents an exciting, soulful mix of creative acoustic music. The five-member group is based in Lexington, Virginia. The band's name refers to an energy collector, and thus Greenhouse is a musical space. Greenhouse performs a variety of jazzy blues, original songs, reggae, bluegrass and traditional music. Greenhouse has strong traditional roots, yet is inclined to follow along several different musical branches. This band is an acoustic celebration!

Food is by Hops Kitchen. Craft food meets Craft beer. Hops Kitchen infuses Basic City beer into mostly all the items we prepare. What can go better than beer and food. Cheers

12noon to 6pm
