Join us for the 36th Annual Virginia Cantaloupe Festival on Friday, July 22, 2016, 5-10 pm. More than music. More than food. A welcoming, entertaining, fun-filled celebration of our community. While preserving history and tradition, the Virginia Cantaloupe Festival strives to stimulate the local economy, and entertain and involve the community and visitors in a historic beautiful location. This year’s festival will be a true celebration of what Halifax County has to offer, featuring local pork, locally grown vegetables, and of course, cantaloupe.
