|The Page County Heritage Festival is a
family-oriented weekend with fun for the whole family! Come
enjoy the weekend in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley during the
peak fall foliage season. The Heritage Festival boasts hundreds of
crafters with all-day demonstrations of spinning, crochet,
apple-butter boiling, tole painting, oil painting, basket making,
wheel thrown pottery, blacksmiths, and more!
And what Fall Festival would be complete without good home-cooking provided by local civic organizations? While at the Page County Heritage Festival, you will be surrounded by the smells of BBQ chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, brown beans and cornbread, country ham, chicken & dumplings, funnel cakes and a host of other treats!
The Heritage Festival also hosts a variety of live entertainment -- all of which is indoors with plenty of seating available! And let's not forget about the kids! Children can enjoy face-painting, a pedal tractor pull, pony rides and a barrel "train ride".
For tractor and engine enthusiasts, the Page County Heritage Festival's Steam & Gas Engine Show will be a one-of-a-kind treat for you! Watch log sawing, feed grinding and corn chopping all powered by steam and antique tractors. Also, enjoy the numerous small antique engines, antique automobiles and tractors on display -- all in running condition. Introduced in 2010, the Festival now hosts an Antique Tractor Pull!
During your visit to Luray, take a tour of nearby properties owned and operated by the Page County Heritage Association. These include the Calendine Museum, the Hamburg Store, the Mauck Meeting House, and the Massanutten One-Room School. Read more about these historic sites. Tours are conducted during both days of the Heritage Festival. Proceeds from the festival go towards the maintenance of these properties.
The Page County Heritage Festival is held rain or shine! Bus groups are welcome (with advanced notice). There are many cabins and bed and breakfasts in the area. Book early -- Columbus Day Weekend is a very busy time in the Shenandoah Valley!
