Waterways Heritage Festival 2019
2019 Waterways Heritage Festival
Enjoy a full day of cultural heritage, fine arts, and music in the Battlefield Park, 1775 Historic Way, Chesapeake, VA 23322, located on the Intracoastal Waterway. Visit the many different guilds and learn firsthand how their crafts are made!
Exhibitors and vendors from throughout the Commonwealth will display and sell their unique crafts ranging from: weaving, woodworking, basket-making, beekeeping (that's us!), pottery, quilters, gardening, photography, silversmith jewelry artistry, glass blowing, sheep-shearing, and more. Local musicians will be featured throughout the weekend, and a variety of food vendors will be present. There will also be a historic Batteau, a flat boat used during colonial times for transport, on display.
The guild will host both the busy bee beanbag toss and a free beeswax candle rolling activity for children. Guild members will also be available to explain the importance of bees and beekeeping, both historically and in present day agriculture and share good gardening practices to protect pollinators. There will also be honey and hive products for sale.
We hope to see you there.
