Due to changes in sponsorship and festival management, the Viette family has decided to focus on making 2015 the best Daylily, Food & Wine Festival ever. We apologize to everyone who was looking forward to this year’s festival, however, order to uphold the integrity of the Daylily, Food & Wine Festival we feel it is best to concentrate our efforts for 2015.
Fields of glorious daylilies and exotic plants against the scenic beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is a must-see for flower lovers, wine lovers and weekend travelers seeking a relaxing get-away.
Surrounded by the beautiful Viette gardens, the Daylily Festival provides a wonderful weekend of entertainment that is sure to tantalize all your senses. From fresh produce right off the farm, to sipping, sampling, and savoring some of Virginia's most loved wines, beers and locally produced foods, this festival is no ordinary summer event.
Come out to the farm on Saturday morning and listen to André as he broadcasts "In the Garden" live right from his own back yard! See how it’s done and meet the people “behind the scenes” of this very popular gardening program.
The day continues with many exciting seminars and workshops in the Seminar Tent. Whether you join us to learn more about small space gardens or how to raise daylilies, there are informative and fun short seminars for every level of outdoor enthusiast.
Many Virginia wineries will present their award-winning spirits for tasting and purchase. Wander through the heart of the festival grounds with your souvenir wine glass and sample wines from over 20 of Virginia's finest vinyards.
Take a break and enjoy live music while feasting on a variety of gourmet foods from some of our finest local restaurants. Enjoy a glass of wine, a refreshing cup of fine beer, or a cup of fresh squeezed lemonade with your meal and top it all off with Italian Ice!
Take some time to stroll through horticultural exhibits and displays. Visit the booths of a diverse range of our regional artisans and crafters.
Got kids?? They can have a great time at the Children’s Tent. The children's area will offer several hands-on, fun and interactive agricultural/horticultural activities that will help educate kids and families on the yummy and healthy produce options available right near their homes ...
There will even be a baby changing station.
If your idea of a great time is enjoying fine food and spirits, learning about gardening, listening to music and relaxing in a beautiful setting with family and friends, put these 2 days on your calendar! Plan to spend the weekend in the Valley and be sure to visit the area's historic and cultural attractions.
