THIS WEEKEND: Virginia Wine and Craft Festival

FRONT ROYAL — The 29th annual Virginia Wine and Craft Festival is expected to draw nearly 13,000 people to Warren County this Saturday. “It seems like it grows every year, which is a good thing of course,” Niki Foster, President of the Front Royal-Warren County Chamber of Commerce said. “Come and enjoy tastings from 21 Virginia wineries. Covering more than seven blocks and featuring over 100 vendors, artists and crafters from all over the east coast, there won’t be anything you can’t find to fit your style, mood or need,” Foster said. Virginia is the 4th largest wine producer in the states, Foster said. So having all the wineries within a certain mile radius of us really helps, Foster said. New this year, the festival has partnered with Mountain Laurel Montessori School for a Children’s Corner, with all kinds of fun activities for children.
