Joshua’s Hands Fall Festival


Calendar > October Events


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 7, 2017, enjoy fall-inspired attractions and live entertainment, including local and regional artists, mimes, puppets, the Celtic School of Rhythm & Dance, and the Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers! Plus, at select times, children will enjoy a visit from the Wildlife Ambassadors, fire trucks, a petting farm, and 4-H animal exhibits.

There will also be pony rides, kids’ crafts, and tons of games! Heritage arts will be well represented with hands-on opportunities to quilt and knit, as well as woodturning, rug making, and wool spinning demonstrations.

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, sports memorabilia, homemade goodies, and more.

The fun takes place at 38327 Charles Town Pike, Waterford, VA.
