For the second year in a row, Fluvanna’s ode to farming and fun makes its spring appearance.

The 21st annual Old Farm Day opens at 9 a.m. Saturday (May 6).

And at only $5 for those 12 and over, you’re going to love it.

One of the attractions this year is Virginia’s traveling “love” sign. It will be parked at Pleasant Grove from May 5-8. Brought to Fluvanna by Me2 Market and Eatery, the sign is 16 feet long with seven-foot high letters. It is a great backdrop for family, engagement and wedding photos.

As many may remember, Old Farm Day used to happen in October. But in October 2015, Hurricane Joaquin cancelled it. The only practical, available time to reschedule the festival was in May, said Tricia Johnson, director of the Fluvanna Historical Society.

“Old Farm Day is Fluvanna’s favorite family festival,” Johnson wrote in an email. “Children love the petting zoo and pony rides by Five Blessings Farm and horse-drawn hayrides by Trey Dillard of A. G. Dillard, as well as the Pink Cotton Candy Lady.  We have an incredible line up of bands this year; while we have our usual bluegrass music, there will also be some blues, soul, and southern rock. We have a much wider variety of food vendors – and, of course, heritage exhibitors demonstrating handcrafts of days gone by, and antique farm equipment.”
