Normally when one turns 86 the pace of life slows down but this is not true of The Bloom Festival in the Shenandoah Valley. The official kick-off event of the 86th Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® begins with the United Bank Bloomin’ Wine Fest. Attendees will enjoy a traditional wine tasting atmosphere, over this two day event held in historic Old Town Winchester. The first wine festival of the season featured by Go Blue Ridge Travel.
This event will feature numerous Virginia wineries in two “Wine Gardens”. Also, over 30 artisans and vendors will be setup along the Old Town Mall along with the local merchants, offering a wide variety of art, jewelry, bags, pottery and much, much more. Live musical entertainment will be ongoing on two stages thru-out the event. And food vendors will be located in the two food courts on the mall, offering a wide variety of food and snacks for every taste. Sales of unopened bottles, cased wine and vineyard accessories will be available until the close of the event each day.
New this year is a Beer garden with music featuring several craft beers.
