This year’s festival will be held on October 8th. Admission and parking are free. We hope to see you there for a day of food and fun for the entire family.

For the past eighteen years the Taste of Brunswick Festival has been growing and progressing until last year we had approximately 10,000 attendees from across the state as well as many from other states. We provide a day full of entertainment for the entire family. We have train rides, bouncy games, a petting zoo, pony rides, a corn box and more for the children. We have a variety of singers for the music lovers, Civil War re-enactors, stagecoach rides, a large car show, antique tractors. We have many vendors and lots of food. We have many booths that are free to civic and non- profit organizations.

The Taste of Brunswick Festival will be held on the campus of Southside Virginia Community College in Alberta. SVCC is located just off Route 46 between U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 85.

Brunswick Stew Cook-Off

Together, our stewmasters prepare about 4,200 quarts of Brunswick stew each year. The stews are judged blindly, and four teams walk away with trophies and prize money.
