Fall Foliage Festival 2023 – Oct 20, 21, 22
Each year October heralds the magnificent beauty and abundance of the Alleghany Highlands’ forest and mountains. We welcome you to scenic, busy and friendly Clifton Forge, Virginia to view the splendor of Autumn foliage and browse through the many exhibits and shows in downtown Clifton Forge.
Local civic groups and organizations have a myriad of refreshments made on the premises, including fresh doughnuts, country ham sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, home baked goods, hamburgers and hot-dogs.
Musical performances can be heard almost nonstop from such diverse types as gospel, country, blue grass, rock bands and local high school. Many types of crafts can be purchased such as handmade jewelry, wooden toys, quilts, Christmas ornaments, wood carvings, and leather goods. Typical tables at the flea market will contain a variety of antiques and collectibles: glassware, furniture, books, silverware, pottery, china, and other items to numerous to mention. The flea market, which lines the main streets of the town is one of the biggest drawing cards of the festival.
The Alleghany Highlands Arts & Crafts Center organizes and administers an open art show awarding prizes in seven categories – oil and acrylic, watercolor, graphics, drawings, mixed media, fiber, and photography.
So come join us this year as we celebrate friendship, family and fraternity with social activities and provide support, both monetarily and by volunteer service to the “Worlds Greatest Philanthropy”, the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children.
