Saturday’s Vintage Woodstock Festival features new and returning events.
The festival will be held from 6-10 p.m. Saturday and will feature food, a beer and wine garden, dancing and live music.
One of the new events is the Shenandoah Valley ArtFest. The event, held from 2-10 p.m., will feature art displays from over 30 area artists, and their art will be available for purchase. The event will also feature live entertainment from Bill Vaughn and Friends from 2-5 p.m.
“We are very happy to showcase beautiful art of all types from over 30 valley artists,” said Katie Mercer, Woodstock enhancement coordinator. “This event has been discussed for several years with intent to support the many talented artists who live here in Shenandoah County. We decided there was no better time to kick off the annual event than this weekend when Bike Virginia cyclists and their families will be visiting and enjoying the valley.”
Bike Virginia will also be in the Woodstock area the day of the festival. The event will feature bike riders from around the country riding on a “looped” track, which is a bike ride that starts and stops in the same location. The route will begin and end at Massanutten Military Academy. This will be the second time since 2016 that Woodstock has hosted Bike Virginia.
Virginia-based band Love Canon will perform during the festival. Acoustic Stone Rollin’, of Harrisonburg, will open for Love Canon.
“Love Canon brings acoustic, bluegrass sound to the popular hits of the 80s and 90s, and they are a must see,” Mercer said.
Food vendors will include Rutz’s Backyard Barbeque and 1752 Barbecue, Tony’s Pizza, I’Guana Taco, and C&C Frozen Treats.
“We encourage anyone who enjoys art, music, food and an overall good time to come out this Saturday to Shenandoah Valley ArtFest and Vintage Woodstock,” Mercer said.
Admission is free.
