Harvest Festival - October 1st

New Kent Winery's first ever Harvest Festival will be on October 1st! Bring the family out for a day filled with fun and activities for all ages! We will have games for the kids, a moon bounce, hay rides, pumpkin picking, face painting, and an inflatable obstacle course!

Wine and beer (you're welcome, dads 😉) will both be available for purchase along with food and drinks for the whole family! We will be offering 4 of Väsen Brewing Company's beers at our Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 1st!. Väsen Brewery is one of Richmond's newest breweries and their beers combine the experimental spirit that defines American craft beer with the rustic and funky flavors of Belgian farmhouse and sour ales. Check them out on Facebook!

Your favorites from Celebrate the Bay Night, Tidewater Oyster and VA Blue Crab Co will be here, as well as Pinot’s Meatballs, Grilled Meats and Treats and Sno to Go.

The Everwilde band will be playing live from 2 - 5PM. You can get a preview of their music here: http://www.everwildeband.com/

Our hayride and pumpkin pass will be $5 per person, entitling you to a ride on our hayride and a pumpkin to bring home with you. For the kids, we will have a $10 activity pass ($15 at the gate), good for the hayride, a pumpkin of their choosing, and unlimited play on all of our inflatables.

Come out and enjoy the fall weather with delicious wines and beers and activities for all ages. We can’t wait to see you!
