LURAY, Oct. 6 — Watch a blacksmith forge iron, a steam-engine team cut logs, a woodworker carve a bowl, or a potter spin clay…all at the 54th annual Page County Heritage Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 7-8 at the Page Valley Fairgrounds.

This “family-oriented weekend with fun for the whole family…in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley during the peak fall foliage season…boasts over a hundred crafters with all-day demonstrations of spinning, crochet, apple-butter boiling, oil painting, basket making, wheel-thrown pottery, blacksmiths, and more,” according to a social media post by the Page County Heritage Association.

“And what Fall Festival would be complete without good home-cooking provided by local civic organizations? While at the Page County Heritage Festival, you will be surrounded by the smells of BBQ chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, brown beans and cornbread, country ham, chicken and dumplings, funnel cakes and a host of other treats!” the promotion reads.

The Heritage Festival also hosts a variety of live entertainment — all of which is indoors with plenty of seating available. Children can enjoy face-painting, a pedal tractor pull, hay maze, petting zoo, barrel train ride, and pony rides.

For tractor and engine enthusiasts, the Page County Heritage Festival’s Steam and Gas Engine Show will feature log sawing, feed grinding, wheat thrashing, hay bailing, and corn husking all powered by steam and antique tractors. Also, enjoy the numerous small antique engines, antique automobiles, and tractors on display — all in running condition.

During the weekend, take a tour of 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. Tours will be conducted during both days of the Heritage Festival.  Proceeds from the festival go towards the maintenance of these properties.

The Page County Heritage Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rich historical Page Valley of Virginia. Organized in 1969, this all-volunteer organization is funded by membership dues, the Heritage Festival held every Columbus Day weekend, the sale of books of local interest and historical significance and fundraisers.
