Virginia Festivals 2015

Virginia certainly is not a state where one can't find anything to do. With its many parks, seashores, museums, major cities and great natural beauty, there's something for everyone to do in Old Dominion. But aside from all of this, there are a number of festivals in Virginia as well. Virginia has a wealth of special upcoming events that include themes such as history, the arts, crafts, nature, beer, wine, music, film, and world peace that span the entire state. There's so much here in fact, that you may have to make some tough decisions. So what Virginia festivals can't be missed?

Virginia State Fair (held late September-early October, Caroline County) If you have time for only one, go to the one that celebrates the state as a whole. In addition to rides, cotton candy, and 4-H exhibits, this event features regional food and artisans. It also has special exhibits on Virginia's natural resources as well as on animal breeds that originated in the state.

Williamsburg Fall Arts (held entire month of October, Williamsburg) The entire town gets into this autumn act which celebrates the arts in all their forms. Among the events are special "spooky tavern tours" in Colonial Williamsburg. There are also corn mazes and pumpkin patches at Berkeley Plantation, and "Scare Zones" at Busch Gardens' annual Howl-O-Scream. But one of the state's great gifts to the nation is its distinctive music, and Virginia music festivals shouldn't be missed. The Richmond Folk Festival (held mid-October, Richmond) is one of the largest of its kind in the country and features dozens of bands, seven stages with continous live music, and a Virginia FolkLife Area.

And the Virginia Scottish Festival (held in late August, The Plains) not only offers bagpipes aplenty, but a fiddling competion, folk singing exhibits, and even modern day Celtic rock bands. And for a taste of world famous Virginia bluegrass, travelers can find it throughout the state, generally in smaller venues. Most of these musical events occur in the summer months. However, the town of Chesapeake offers a Cabin Fever Pickin' Party (held in early March) that offers a chance to hear more than a dozen bluegrass bands, take instrument workshops, and enjoy a large vendors' area, all indoors.
