Pork, Pine and Peanut Festival

Saturday July 17 - Sunday July 18

Celebrate the region's most treasured resources. Listen to live entertainment and explore historic grounds. An exciting addition this year is an open archaeological field school by the mansion. At 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, go back to simpler times, when life was a little slower. Watch a parade of antique cars along with local civic groups, boy scouts and local law enforcement groups. Naturally, the highlight of the parade will be Mr. and Miss Peanut. This year also features the first annual BBQ cook-off. There's plenty to do for all ages. Don't miss one of Virginia's premiere festivals.
