Spirits Festival 2016
Art – Wine – Beer – Distilled Spirits – Bands – Food Trucks – Specialty Vendors

We celebrate the pleasures of the palate at the Spirits Festival at Belle Grove Plantation presented by the James Madison Belle Grove Foundation. Combining exclusive wines, craft beers and distilled spirits while featuring the talents of local and regional artists, live bands and culinary delights, made the Spirits Festival at Belle Grove Plantation a perfect blend of fall time on the banks of the Rappahannock River.

We also kicked off our Ghost Tours at Belle Grove Plantation with tours of our historic mansion with special “spirit” guides (Coastal Virginia Paranormal) as they moved our guests through the mansion with stories of the haunts of Belle Grove Plantation. Photographic evidence, audio voices and more awaited those who brave this tour!

After our Spirit Festival Event and Ghost Tours and with the added funds from our “Get Into the Spirit” Online Auction, the James Madison Belle Grove Foundation will receive $5,499.95! This was the first time for this event and we plan for this to become an annual event.

 

We would like to thank everyone who have attended our James Madison Belle Grove Foundation events and have donated to our foundation. It is through your support that future generations will have the opportunity to know Belle Grove and learn about our amazing American History.
