Joshua’s Hands Fall Festival


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Honoring loving son and gymnast Josh Guthrie, Joshua’s Hands Fall Festival is one of our region’s annual highlights for the whole family!

On October 6, 2018, enjoy fall-inspired attractions and live entertainment, including a Spelling Bee, local and regional artists, mimes, the Celtic School of Rhythm & Dance, and the Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers! Plus, at select times, children can enjoy a visit with the Wildlife Ambassadors, a petting farm, pony rides, fire trucks, and more.

There will also be kids’ crafts, carnival-style games, and puppet shows. Heritage arts will be well represented with hands-on opportunities to quilt and knit, as well as woodturning, rug making, and wool spinning demonstrations. Guests can also enjoy friendly competitions like cookie stacking, a photo scavenger hunt, and even try their luck on the obstacle course!

Plus, everything is free, including lunch! This is only possible because of generous community support of the live auction (2 pm). Local, regional, and national donations will be auctioned off to cover the expenses of the event and to support the work of Joshua’s Hands. Some of the items to be auctioned this year include quilts, restaurant gift cards, vacation stays, homemade goodies, local experiences, and more.

All the fun takes place at 38327 Charles Town Pike, Waterford, VA 20197.
