Centered around the Harbor and Historic Petersburg just a short walk away featuring vendors from all over the Commonwealth, there won't be anything you can't find to fit your style, mood.
Not to be outdone by the wineries, breweries and crafters, the food vendors are coming out in full force for you to decide whether to have funnel cakes, barbecue, steak-n-cheese, shish kabobs, or just burgers and dogs may take you the whole day.
