Apple Blossom Time

Art at the Mill near our Shenandoah Valley bed and breakfast

Art at the Mill Open Now Until May 13th

The first week in May, is a busy one in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It is the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester, the Gold Cup Races at Great Meadows in the Plains Virginia and the beginning of the Art at the Mill Show in Millwood, Virginia. All of these events are just minutes from our Shenandoah Valley bed and breakfast. So come out this weekend; there is plenty to see and do, or just kick off your shoes in the backyard of the inn and enjoy the summer-like weather.

The firemen’s parade is this Friday to kick off the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester! If you haven’t attended this parade it has the most fire trucks of any Firemen’s parade in the country.

Our celebrities that will be out and about this year are Mario Lopez, of MTV’s America’s Dance Crew and author of Mario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness and the beautiful Jazz Dorset, daughter of legendary sports figure with the University of Pittsburgh and the Dallas Cowboys.

The circus is in town and the Grand Feature Parade on Saturday will be a “Salute to Our Troops” with our local Virginia Girl, “Wounded Warrior” Capt. Leslie Smith, as the Grand Marshall. There are parties, sports breakfasts, dances, dinners, 10K race, the carnival, circus and much more. It is a local event the whole family can enjoy! A small town event at it’s finest.

It is the 87th running of the Virginia Gold Cup and there are still some tickets for spaces left if you go to their website. This is a fun-filled day of steeplechase racing and tailgate picnics! The festive atmosphere and the thrill of the chase make this a must for any city folks. Bring a beautiful hat and let us pack you a picnic to take.

Every Spring and Fall, the Burwell Morgan Mill in the quaint village of Millwood, Virginia becomes an extraordinary art gallery. Over 300 judges artist display their pottery, sculpture, fine woodwork and all types of paintings. There is truly something for every taste and budget. This show runs through May 13 and is a must see for the art lover in this 18th century working mill. When the art show closes the mill resumes grinding of fresh flour for the year. You can stop in this summer and pick up fresh whole wheat, corn, blue corn, and general all purpose flours, just to name a few. Buying local comes to new heights.

So grab your gal and come out to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and enjoy all the countryside has to offer. And don’t forget Mother on the 13th of May, the plant sale at the Virginia State Arboretum, Bland Farm and brunch here at L’Auberge Provencale from 11:30-2:30 and Mother’s Day Dinner 2:30-7:00. Treat your mom to the best that is offered in the Valley at our Shenandoah Inn!
