Peach festival is today

Friday, August 15, 2014

The Virginia State Peach Festival will be held from 4 to 10 p.m. today at Wayside Park in Stuart.

The date of the event was incorrect in a headline in Thursday’s Bulletin.

The festival will feature food, music, crafts, vendors, loads of homegrown peaches and a Kid Zone, according to a news release. Admission is free.

Evan & Dana, from the Triad area of North Carolina, will open the entertainment at 6 p.m.

Headlining the program this year will be the award-winning band the Worx, which will perform at 8 p.m., according to Tim Collins, executive director of the Patrick County Chamber of Commerce. Worx has been nominated several times as the best band in the state. The band plays everything from country and rock to rap and dance music, Collins said.

With the festival’s move this year to Wayside Park, camping is available for festival-goers for the first time, Collins said. He added that electrical hookups and dump stations are available. Call 692-4149 to make arrangements for camping.

Wayside Park is about 3 miles southeast of Stuart at 1988 Wayside Road, according to www.waysidepark.com. Follow U.S. 58 to Route 8, then south on Route 8 to Wayside Road on the left. Then go one mile to Big A School Road on left, then go about 1.6 miles to Wayside Park Road on the right. Follow the signs.

Also this weekend, the Meadows of Dan Folk Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in Meadows of Dan. It will feature music, crafts and historical demonstrations.

At 11 a.m., Tony and Heather Mabe will perform gospel music at Mountain Meadow Farm, on Concord Road behind Poor Farmer’s Market.

Once Upon a Blue Ridge, a touring theater company, will perform at 1 p.m. Saturday under the big tent at the farm. Peter and Christina Holland will take the stage in an interactive “living storybook” for children. Children of all ages will be invited to participate in stories such as “The Brementown Musicians,” “Jack Rabbit,” “Animal Tales” and more. Children who participate will be given free helium balloons by the promoter, Sue Shelor, owner of Mountain Meadow Farm and Craft Market.

Spinning demonstrations will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Greenberry House and Mountain Meadow Farm and Craft Market, 12134 Squirrel Spur Road.
