Powhatan's 12th Annual Festival of the Grape
Powhatan, the Greater Richmond Region and beyond -- You Rock! What a great Powhatan’s Festival of the Grape you helped create- all 7,500+ of you! October 25 was the 12th annual Powhatan’s Festival of the Grape, sponsored by the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce. Not only was Powhatan’s among the first wine festivals back when, this year it hosted some more firsts –a hat parade, four new wineries (30 in all) and new musical entertainment from hometown favorite Southern tide and longtime regional favorite, The Janitors. The Powhatan Chamber of Commerce is most appreciative of all the amazing support for this event! The volunteers who gave so much more than just their time, our long-held sponsors that continue to support us year after year plus this year’s new sponsors; the vendors that entice us with their wares, and the wineries that work so hard to share their knowledge and product. Through the Festival of the Grape’s Susan Ash Award, the Powhatan Chamber gives up to $5,000 to a local non-profit organization. This year’s recipients will share the award Backpacks of Love and Powhatan Band Boosters. Once again the Powhatan community came together to demonstrate its customary welcoming enthusiasm and its benevolence...ensuring our resounding success—thank you! We hope to see you October 24, 2015 here in the historic Courthouse Village.
