With all of the beautiful spring weather we've been having here in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, it's time to get outside and enjoy it! Two opportunities to do so are taking place this weekend in Jefferson and Berkeley County— Downtown Martinsburg's Chocolate Fest and Book Faire and the Shenandoah-Potomac Garden Council House and Garden Tour!
Chocolate Fest and Book Faire
April 29, 2017; 10 AM to 4 PM
Historic Downtown Martinsburg
This year marks the fifth annual Chocolate Fest and Book Faire in downtown Martinsburg and for one day only, you can taste wonderful chocolates, view chocolate creations throughout the downtown businesses and explore the local shops. You can even speak with authors from right here in West Virginia as the Book Faire portion of this popular event will feature both local and out of state authors signing their books inside downtown businesses.
As for the Chocolate Fest, there will be over 25 businesses preparing a different chocolate item to enjoy on the Chocolate Walk. Showings of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be held at the Public Library on the corner of King and Queen Street, and the annual cupcake competition will offer $500 for the best cupcake creation. If you're up for more, you can take a tour of local chocolatier, DeFluri's Fine Chocolates, large 10,000 square foot factory and attend the wine pairing on Friday night.
Shenandoah-Potomac Garden Council House and Garden Tour
April 29, 2017; 10:30 AM to 5 PM
This year will be the 62nd annual House and Garden Tour featuring historic homes throughout Jefferson and Berkeley County. There will be guides on hand from various local garden clubs to show guests through both the homes and gardens, allowing you to learn more about their history, architecture, furniture, plants and of course, the families that lived in them. This year's tours will feature seven homes, including the Smallwood House, the Gibson-Dodd House, Falling Spring, Buddy's House, the John Evans House, Patterson Distillery House and Lick Run Plantation. Tours are scheduled at the peak of the spring season to showcase the gardens' true beauty, so don't miss out!
