After a day picking apples, pack a picnic lunch for the park, relax at one of our swimming pools, ride a paddle boat, or try hiking, fishing, or horseback riding.
The Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival is Winchester’s signature event! Each year, hundreds of thousands of people join together to celebrate the arrival of the apple blossoms and adorn the city in pink and green. Since its beginnings in 1924, the festival has grown over the years to a ten-day celebration with over 30 events, including two huge parades, a carnival, dances, concerts, a 10K race, wine festival, golf tournament, and so much more!
The 150th Anniversaries of three battles that took place in Winchester-Frederick County will be commemorated in 2014. Guided tours, living history demonstrations, National Park Service programs, and reenactments are just a few of the ways to experience the Civil War history of the Shenandoah Valley at these special events.
