Lots of amazing food from local restaurants will be available for your tasting pleasure. Items will be priced at only $5, $6, and $7, so you can try whatever catches your eye. And really, under $10 for tasty, locally made bites is a pretty sweet deal. Head on over to the Drive-In for food truck fare or food tents at the Marketplace, and grab a seat in the Eatery to enjoy your grub.

Of course, no food festival is complete without drinks! For $35, the Early Bird Drink Ticket allows for unlimited samples of craft beer, wine, and cider from the Virginia region. Savor pours from Sunset Hills Vineyards, Dog Money Brewery, and Wild Hare Hard Cider. Ticket prices go up to $45 on August 8, so we recommend grabbing your tickets before then, as they're likely to sell out. 

The best part? You'll be able to shop while you eat and drink! Local vendors will line the streets, so sip on some wine and browse one-of-a-kind goods. Live music will also play throughout the night from two stages, so kick back and relax (preferably, drink in-hand) for the perfect summer evening!
