On Saturday, October 18 2014 the Virginia Museum of Radio Entertainment is pleased to present The Third Annual Virginia Hops & Harvest Festival at Pocahontas State Park, 10301 State Park Rd, Chesterfield, VA. Pocahontas State Park is just a few miles southeast of Richmond, and is easily accessible from Highway 360 or Interstate 95. Tickets are $16.50 advance, $20.00 at the gate (beer tastings not included in cost of admission). Must be at least 21 years old with a valid drivers license in order to consume alcohol. Gates open at 12:00 PM; music begins at 1:30 PM. Tickets are available online or at the gate.
The Virginia Hops & Harvest Festival is a day-long celebration of Virginia's bounty, featuring local artisans, craft brewers, food vendors, and outdoor adventure companies, in the beautiful setting of Virginia's largest state park. Music will be provided by Quebe Sisters, Paul Plumeri Blues Band, and others TBA.
Seventeen years after scoring the Grammy Award winning, harmonica laced Billboard Top Ten breakthrough hit that came to define pop music in the mid-90's, Blues Traveler are still finding unique ways to ensure that they don't give their legion of worldwide fans the "Run-Around". On their instantly infectious, musically expensive 11th studio album and 429 Records/SLG debut, Suzie Cracks The Whip, they remain creatively focused while dramatically expanding their musical horizons upon celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.
