Friends of Wilderness Road State Park invite you to participate in this year’s Heritage Festival activities on October 12, 13, and 14. You can experience the fall season along the Wilderness Road in the early years of our Nation’s history, discovering how settlers prepared for the coming winter. The historic Martin’s Station offers educational demonstrations for your enjoyment on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday: soap making, authentic music, a Longhunter’s camp, Cherokee warrior’s camp, an 18th century market, and much more.
The highest mountains in Virginia will have their fall "coats of many colors" on, so bring your camera when you come to the Whitetop Mountain Sorghum Molasses Festival. Enjoy the spectacular views and watch close up the molasses and applebutter making. And you can buy some to take home along with great memories. This traditional mountain festival also features a craft show, live music with some of the region's best mountain music makers, dancing, and a chicken BBQ dinner. It is held at Mt. Rogers Fire Hall on Rt. 58 in the Whitetop Community. Always the 2nd Sunday in October.
Parade, arts and crafts, and - best of all- the Grand Privy Race. Come Friday night to the Potty Princess Pageant at the Historic 1908 Courthouse. For more information: email@example.com or www.independenceva.com.
