Kick up your heels and swing your partner – the RVGA Harvest Hoedown & Local Food Barbecue is back!

Join farmers and neighbors on Saturday, September 23 (4-9, rain or shine!), at Marbletown (“Tongore”) Park, to celebrate local food & farming.

There will be fun for everyone – a tractor collection, Zucchini 500 Race, pumpkin decorating, and more! We’ll be serving our famous farm-to-table feast, accompanied by live performances from local musicians, including The Shoe String Band and Caller-Fiddler Liz Slade.

Hope to see you there!
