With over 170 juried artisans, food vendors, demonstrators & entertainers participating in this four-day long annual tradition, there is always plenty to do, see, and explore at the flagship conservation area. You'll also want to be sure to stop at the Farmer's Market where you can pick up local produce and VQA Wines.
The first Thanksgiving Festival was held at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area in 1975. The intention was simple: to raise money for conservation and environmental programs that were not otherwise funded. This remains the purpose of the Festival today. From its humble beginnings as a one-day craft show, the event has become a family tradition.
