The highlight of the year is the annual Muscadine Festival that is held on the weekend of Labor Day. Visitors from all over come to celebrate the sweet fruit in a variety of ways and to re-live if only in spirit day-to-day life on the farm.
The festival offers attendees the chance to get a feel for rigid farm life at the turn of the 20th century through the sifting of flour, churning of butter, and washing clothes with lye soap. And that’s only the beginning: the farm offers tours and demonstrations and story reading (for the little ones). Of course the vineyard’s mainstay is the overflowing of all-you-can-eat grapes.
Events include wine tastings, book signing, pit-pig barbecue, face painting and other children's games and activities, early black farm demonstrations, fireworks show and a birthday celebration for David Williams, 2010 Agriculturalist of the Year and owner of the farm.
