Seafood & Wine Festival

  • Saturday, October 15, 2011

    11:00am - 6:00pm

    General Admission $5 | Wine Tasters $15

    Town Hill in Colonial Beach is the place to be for Seafood, Wine, Art, live music and more!

    Try your luck in a 50/50 Raffle, hear some great bands and enjoy a nice Fall afternoon in our fine riverside resort town.

    The event is a fundraiser for the Colonial Beach Foundation which does great work in the Town in the areas of beautification and philanthropy.

    Wine tasting will be hosted by wineries from the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail. The $15 wine tasting fee will also include a complimentary commemorative wine glass. T-shirts featuring the festival logo will be sold and there will also be a series of prizes and 50/50 raffles.

    Music will be provided by Steve Jarrell and Lee Quisenberry, the Sons of the Beach, a fabulous Carolina beach music duo with traveling members who have played all up and down the East coast. You can even listen to Steve's radio show on the internet at and hear some fabulous tunes from the 60s, 70s and beyond.

    A kids' corner will be available with children's games and activities, and of course there will be plenty of delicious seafood from the Northern Neck area and other American fare available.

    Jarrett Thor Fine Arts will be hosting the art show which will include works for sale from award-winning Mid-Atlantic artists as well as pieces from local Northern Neck artists.

    Award-winning wildlife artist Jonathan Shaw will be providing painting demonstrations throughout the day with one of his live falcons. He will also have art on display and for sale.

    All proceeds from the event will go to funding the various philanthropic activities that the Colonial Beach Foundation sponsors, which include the Beach/Riverfront Beautification project Project Colonial Beach, the Hug-a-Bear project, sending Colonial Beach school children to the 4-H Summer Camp, the oyster gardening education project, as well as many other positive endeavors that enhance the town and help its residents.
