Why do so many people come out to Pleasant Grove on the first Saturday of October every year? It ís the apple pie contest, activities for kids, the music, homemakers' competitions, great food from local vendors, the Pink Cotton Candy Lady, demonstrations by heritage craftsmen, and so much more! Most of all, it ís the incredible collection of heritage farm equipment, exhibited and demonstrated by local residents, who are proud of their Fluvanna roots. This year, be sure to visit the Heritage Farm Museum booth to learn about plans to build a permanent year-round home for these collections at Pleasant Grove. The museum fund will share proceeds from Old Farm Day with the Fluvanna Historical Society. Look for an exciting raffle, contests, and other ways to support the planned museum as well.

Volunteers--We Need Your Help!
There's a lot to be done between now and the first Saturday of October. Our planning began early this year; now we’re beginning to see those plans take shape. Extra hands are needed to recruit volunteers, complete exhibits, make signs and gather materials for our contests, make phone calls, distribute flyers, prepare our final schedule of events and help with mailing vendor packets. Join us in making this the biggest and best event Fluvanna County has ever seen.
Or, let us know if you're available to take on one of the many jobs that need to be filled just for October 4. Sign up for a shift or the entire day. We’ll be posting descriptions of specific jobs on this website and on Facebook as we get closer to the date. If you’d like to do that, let us know by e-mail:(email@example.com) or leave a message on our voice-mail phone line: 434-589-9405.
Our Vendor Application Deadline Has Passed
We have signed up the majority of last year’s vendors as well as a number of newcomers to Old Farm Day. Assignment of spaces is first come, first served, based on the date your application was postmarked. Vendor information packets will be mailed in mid-September.
The deadline for application was September 1; because of the holiday, we will process applications received by September 4. We will consider, but not guarantee, applications posted on September 2 or later. Refunds will not be made for cancellations made after the deadline.
We will leave the application forms posted on this site for reference purposes.
