Blacksburg Fork and Cork- Saturday, May 2, 2015
The Blacksburg Partnership, a non-profit economic development organization serving the Blacksburg area, announces plans for the 7th annual Blacksburg Fork and Cork festival on Saturday, May 2 at the First and Main Shopping District. The festival will run from noon-6pm. Tickets will go on sale in March at both Blacksburg Kroger stores and online at www.blacksburgforkandcork.com.
This year, Fork and Cork attendees will sample wines from more than 20 wineries across the Commonwealth. The Wine 101 tent will host seminars throughout the day, and guests will have the opportunity to peruse the handmade creations of local artists and purchase food and wine-related gifts. Delicious festival fare will tempt appetites, with local restaurants offering an array of signature dishes to purchase and cooking demonstration areas showcasing the talents of regional chefs. There will be free tastings while they last. In addition, the festival will have an outstanding backdrop of live music from two stages.
“Our goal is to showcase the finest of Virginia wines to all of our attendees. We want Fork and Cork to become a yearly destination for Blacksburg locals and beyond,” said Blacksburg Partnership President Diane Akers.
