Strasburg will ring in spring with its inaugural Vintage in the Valley festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
The festival will feature over 200 vendors of vintage goods, antiques, and homemade crafts, as well as several events and activities for all ages.
“As our inaugural event, I am hopeful that Vintage in the Valley becomes a Strasburg tradition,” said Olivia Hilton, marketing & events coordinator for the Town of Strasburg.
Vendors will set up inside the Town Hall parking lot and the Strasburg Emporium lot. A few vendors in attendance will be the Stock Exchange, Classic Trash, Designs by Kent Harper, Salvage Barn, Fancifelt, and others who will be offering vintage furniture, handmade jewelry, recycled and refurbished items and custom pieces. There are also over 90 vendors inside the Emporium that will be open.
The festival will also feature several events including the Vintage Fashion Show — with close to 30 models taking part in the show — starting at 1 p.m., and a vintage car and tractor show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Shenandoah Museum of Contemporary Art and Rockingham Cooperative hardware store. The Strasburg Museum will be open for the day and admission will be free.
Other events include the Staufferstadt Arts Speakeasy Lounge and wine garden, face-painting and a bouncy house for the kids. There also will be a scavenger hunt.
The festival will feature eight hours of live music at the Strasburg Square beginning at 10 a.m. with the High School Ensemble. Other musical acts include Diablo Dimes, Elvis and Patsy Cline.
“We wanted activities to all be within walking distance but to include as many local businesses as possible,” Hilton said. “In lieu of food trucks for this festival, we have a list of 10 restaurants within the area that are hosting specials during the festival, to encourage visitors to experience the delicious side of Strasburg.”
Admission for the festival is free.
