Northern Neck to Celebrate Winterfest 2014

Feb. 14-17 will mark “Winterfest 2014 in the Northern Neck” and include a long weekend of events celebrating recreation in the Northern Neck in winter, and the Presidential legacy of the region where three Presidents were born.

All ten wineries in the Northern Neck will be open for tours, tastings and cherry-themed delicacies.

Outdoor events will feature geocaching at Belle Isle State Park, the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail Sweetheart Half-Marathon, “Stratford Under Your Feet” guided fossil walk at Stratford Hall, and a “Menokin Illuminated” moonlit walk of the grounds surrounding the home of Francis Lightfoot Lee outside Warsaw.

The Second Friday Art Walk will be held at Colonial Beach, and the Owl Prowl will take place at Caledon State Park.

On Monday, George Washington Birthplace National Monument will be celebrating Washington’s Birthday with cake and living history demonstrations, in addition to hosting 4-H activities at the Birthplace.

Inside events will include Tidewater Oyster Growers Association’s oyster-growing demonstration tanks at the Visitors Center at Westmoreland State Park, a book-signing of Vanessa Wedding’s An Uncivilized Yankee at Oak Crest Winery, a Valentine’s Dinner at Jacey Vineyards, and productions of Boeing Boeing at the Lancaster Players Theatre in White Stone.

Various heritage guilds – blacksmithing, woodworking, and spinners and weavers - will be active at Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern in Heathsville.  

For details on a specific event, please contact the attraction where the event is to be held, as some events charge fees and require registration.
