Blacksburg Fork and Cork

The Blacksburg Partnership, a non-profit economic development organization serving the Blacksburg area, announces plans for the 7th annual Blacksburg Fork and Cork festival on Saturday, May 2. This year’s event will feature a change in venue. In prior years the festival was held at the First & Main Shopping District, but this year the event will be at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center.

This year, Fork and Cork attendees will sample wines from more than 20 wineries across the Commonwealth. The Wine 101 tent will host seminars throughout the day, and guests will have the opportunity to view handmade creations of local artists and purchase food and wine-related gifts. Delicious festival fare will tempt appetites, with local restaurants offering an array of signature dishes to purchase and three cooking demonstration areas showcasing the talents of regional chefs. There will be free tastings while they last. In addition, the festival will have an outstanding backdrop of live music from two stages.
