Have you been patiently waiting for the spring Fork and Cork festival to roll around this year? Wait no longer, the New River Valley’s premier food, wine, and art festival is set for Saturday, May 2 from noon – 6pm. But wait, the most important thing to remember about this year’s festival is its new, spacious location at 1600 Innovation Drive in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center. As always, there will be over 20 wineries sampling some of the greatest vino in the Commonwealth, wine pairing and cooking demonstrations throughout the day, handmade creations by local artists, culinary delights, and live music.
“We’re excited about our new location in the CRC,” said Blacksburg Partnership President Diane Akers. The added space will allow us to revamp our layout, provide more vendor space and an even more enjoyable experience for our guests. Fork and Cork will be bigger and better than ever.”
In addition to onsite parking, shuttles will once again be available from the Chicken Hill parking lot. Please refer to the festival location map as well as the parking proximity map for Chicken Hill. Carpooling is recommended. Mark your calendars and make the Fork and Cork experience your tradition.
