Fluvanna's Favorite Festival is Celebrating its 20th Anniversary!
     
            New Activities Planned for Old Farm Day May 7
                                               

Organizers of Fluvanna's Old Farm Day May 7 have added some new activities to the 20th-anniversary event. In addition to the traditional displays of historic equipment, demonstrations by heritage craftspeople, entertainment and activities for kids, this year's Old Farm Day will include a parade, and organizers will expand its entertainment programming with a Church Choir Relay and performances by local bands.

The Fluvanna Historical Society set May 7 as the date for this year's 20th annual Old Farm Day, replacing the event that was rained out last October. The event, at Pleasant Grove in Palmyra, will feature fascinating demonstrations by heritage craftsmen, educational activities for kids, toe-tapping music, and incredible collections of heritage farm equipment.Old Farm Day will also include displays from community churches and organizations, contests, and great food from more than 100 local vendors and exhibitors.

“This is not just a great chance to meet up with friends and have a good time, it's also an opportunity to learn a little about the agricultural history of this lovely county, and maybe buy a homemade craft or two,” said Old Farm Day Chair Tricia Johnson. “We hope people are marking it on their calendar now as one of the big events of the spring.”

Old Farm Day is expected to include some exciting announcements about the Fluvanna Historical Society's ongoing plans to create a Farm Heritage Museum at Pleasant Grove, Johnson said. Proceeds from Old Farm Day are divided between a fund to set up the museum and the Fluvanna Historical Society. The Historical Society, meanwhile, is still looking for volunteers to help with Old Farm Day. It also is still accepting applications for a limited amount of display space.
