RVing to the Shenandoah Valley Hot Air Balloon, Wine & Music Festival

Have you had the pleasure of visiting scenic Clarke County, Virginia? If not, you should definitely plan an RV trip to the Long Branch Historic House and Farm. It’s the site each year of the Shenandoah Valley Hot Air Balloon, Wine & Music Festival. Just in case you’re not familiar with this fascinating festival, we’ve pulled together all the resources you need to make this a perfect RV vacation.

The Festival
In mid-October each year, the Long Branch plantation provides a scenic and historic setting for the Hot Air Balloon & Wine Festival. There are events for the entire family, including an antique car show, hay bale maze, and of course, the balloons! For three days, dozens of balloonists from all over the US descend on Long Branch Farm for ascensions, exhibitions and a Friday night Hot Air Balloon & Pumpkin Glow.

Another great reason to attend this event annually is the wine tasting exhibition, featuring up to twenty area wineries. The fine wines themselves are reason enough to schedule an RV camping trip to the area! There’s also plenty of live music, fabulous food and the celebrated farm, originally surveyed by George Washington. In other words, you’ll want to spend all three days of the Festival soaking in the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley while attending entertaining events.

RV Camping Near the Festival
There are plenty of RV campsites near the Festival grounds. Watermelon Park Campground in Berryville has full-service sites along the Shenandoah River. Another great choice is Candy Hill Campground in Winchester. Choose your campground and make your reservations early. This is a very popular event with RVers!

If you don’t own your own RV, we’re ready to help you with a great rental. Our El Monte RV Rentals location in Roanoke, Virginia is easily accessible from all airports in the Washington, D.C. area. Fly into Dulles, Reagan or Baltimore Airport, pick up your plush motorhome and travel south to Millwood for the Festival.

Isn’t this the year you should be watching hot air balloons rise into the Virginia sky? We give Shenandoah Valley Hot Air Balloon, Wine & Music Festival a big thumbs up as an RV camping trip destination.
