Saturday, September 20, 2014The 5th Annual Lynchburg Beer and Wine Festival will take place in Lynchburg, Virginia at the Lynchburg City Stadium on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Drawing in over 8,000 guests to the Hill City for this one day event, this festival has grown by leaps and bounds since its conception in 2010. Over 16 area wineries are on hand with samples of their finest Virginia wines. Breweries from the state and beyond will have craft ales and lagers on tap with 96 different varieties for you to sample and buy. Artisans and crafters from around the state display their goods while area businesses are represented to feature their newest line of products. Food vendors galore line the perimeter of the festival park with barbecue, ribs, wings and crab cakes. You will also find the all American favorites of hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, ribbon fries and funnel cakes. This year we are excited to add Mediterranean, Greek and Italian cuisine. There will be something to tempt every pallet. A festival isn't a festival without the finest of entertainment. Our goal is to bring in local acts as well as featured bands from out of the area that will offer a different variety of music while still playing the favorite sing-a-long tunes that everyone loves. Plan to spend the day at the 5th Annual Lynchburg Beer and Wine Festival on Saturday, September 20, 2014.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014Experience the ways in which Mr. Jefferson and his grandchildren, who often accompanied him on his visits to Poplar Forest, may have spent their evenings by participating in a rare candlelit tour of the plantation house. As you walk through the house, you’ll be entertained by anecdotes gathered from Jefferson's letters and diaries. Highlights of the rooms include the East Bedchamber—where his grandchildren slept and from which they walked out onto the terrace for evening strolls with the owls and bats—and the Parlor, with period furnishings, where Jefferson would have kept his library. Visit his kitchen to see an interpretive, period-style cooking demonstration, or do some early holiday shopping in the Museum Shop, which will be open until 7:00 p.m. for your convenience. Tour beings at 5:30 p.m. Admission is $20 per person. Reservations are required. Please call the Museum Shop at 434.534.8120 to reserve a place.
