Please join us Saturday, November 5 for The Vices That Made Virginia, a rollicking outdoor celebration of the region’s finest farmers and food artisans and an important fundraiser for Arcadia Center For Sustainable Food & Agriculture. The scenic grounds of Historic Woodlawn, home to the Arcadia Farms, provide the backdrop for a lively evening of bourbon, bluegrass, oysters, beer, wine and so much more – all designed to showcase the very best of Virginia. We've also assembled a number of the region’s top culinary talents to prepare an amazing array of foods from braised local lamb and whole roasted pig to warming southern stews, those aforementioned oysters, handmade cobblers and more. Arcadia and Woodlawn are also immensely proud to welcome a superb collection of handpicked food artisans, winemakers, brewers and distillers to join this year's party.
