      EVENT DETAILS
      Historic Clifford Ruritan Sorghum Festival

      Clifford Virginia's most popular event will be here soon! For more than thirty years on the first full weekend in October the Clifford Ruritans have brought together old-fashioned sorghum syrup and apple butter making, traditional Virginia music and food, historical presentations and much, much, more. This year dozens of horseback jousters from across the Commonwealth will come together to vie for the Virginia State Championship.

      In addition to jousting, festival offerings include food – fresh, hot sandwiches, Brunswick stew, beverages and desserts; Old-fashioned sorghum syrup and apple butter cooking and sales; fresh local produce, crafts, art, collectibles, gifts, jewelry and quilts; kids’ activities; Civil War re-enactors campsite; and live musical and dancing entertainment.

      The festival will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 6th and 7th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, rain or shine. Lawn chairs are welcome, but no pets, please. All proceeds benefit local community charities. Join us for a day of fun in Amherst County.
