Celebrating Virginia’s Home-Grown Holiday: Harvest Party

Wine Month

October 15th is a day for the Commonwealth to come together to toast the richness of our region with Harvest Party. People in the city, the country and on the shore, gather safely in restaurants, vineyards, private homes and open fields for a feast of Virginia-grown food and wine.

Today’s traditions have too many rules and no local color. We deserve a day to celebrate what makes us, us. Inventing a new tradition and evolving it as we go seems like a very “Virginia” thing to do.

Follow along for a guide to this year’s Harvest Party, Virginia’s Home-Grown Holiday. 

Celebrations take place all October, but some of the best are slated for the weekend of October 15.
