Celebrate the 54th annual Page County Heritage Festival on October 7th and 8th

The festival will be at the Page Valley Agricultural and Industrial Fair Grounds in Luray during the peak of the beautiful fall foliage season. 

The Page County Heritage Festival is a weekend of fun for the whole family! The Heritage Festival has over a hundred crafters with all-day demonstrations of spinning, crochet, apple-butter boiling, oil painting, basket making, wheel-thrown pottery, blacksmiths, and more!

And what Fall Festival would be complete without good home cooking provided by local organizations? There will be delicious smells of BBQ chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, brown beans and cornbread, country ham, chicken & dumplings, funnel cakes, and other tasty treats!

The Heritage Festival also hosts a variety of live entertainment — all of which is indoors with plenty of seating available! And let’s not forget about the kids! Children can enjoy face painting, a pedal tractor pull, a hay maze, a petting zoo, a barrel train ride, and pony rides!

For tractor and engine enthusiasts, the Page County Heritage Festival’s Steam & Gas Engine Show will be a one-of-a-kind treat for you! Watch log sawing, feed grinding, wheat thrashing, hay bailing, and corn husking powered by steam and antique tractors. Also, enjoy the numerous small antique engines, automobiles, and tractors on display — all in running condition.

During your visit to Luray, tour the nearby properties owned and operated by the Page County Heritage Association. These include the Calendine Museum, the Hamburg Store, the Mauck Meeting House, and the Massanutten One-Room School. There will be tours on both days of the Heritage Festival. Proceeds from the festival go towards the maintenance of these properties.

The Page County Heritage Festival is held rain or shine! There is LOTS of free parking, and bus groups are always welcome (advanced notice is appreciated). There are many cabins and bed and breakfasts in the area. Book early — Columbus Day Weekend is a busy time in the Shenandoah Valley!
