The 94th Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® is pleased to announce part six of our What’s New at the Bloom event series. The Festival will take place from April 23-May 2, 2021 with 21 planned events. Tickets are limited and many of our events will take place at alternate venues this year due to COVID-19. The Festival will follow all CDC guidelines and the Governor’s latest Executive Orders at all events. Participants should expect to follow all requirements, including the mask mandate in order to participate.
Please note below that the Ladies Commonwealth Luncheon and the Winchester Radiologists Pumps & Pearls recently relocated to Millwood Station Event Center from Piccadilly’s Public House due to limitations in the Governor’s latest Executive Order.
Tickets and registration are now available for the following events:
BB&T now Truist Men’s Commonwealth Luncheon
The annual BB&T, now Truist Men’s Commonwealth Luncheon is set for 11 a.m. at Piccadilly’s Public House & Restaurant, 125 East Piccadilly Street.
This popular gathering of gentlemen will be reminiscent of the original and complementary to the current Stag Luncheon. The area’s business and community leaders know this is one networking event not to miss!
It is held in the heart of downtown Winchester in a restored grocery warehouse built in 1900, now known as Piccadilly’s Public House & Restaurant. Attendees enjoy a delectable lunch of custom-made Baltimore bratwurst with their favorite libations and special samples of world-famous distilled spirits while engaging in lively discussions.
Proper attire includes a jacket or tie. Gentlemen, raise your glasses in a toast to Apple Blossom’s nostalgic event.
