Our conversation today with Olivia Hilton, Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Town of Strasburg gave us all the details for Vintage in the Valley happening April 1, 2023. The 4th Annual Vintage in the Valley Festival will showcase nearly 100 vendors of vintage goods, antiques, and handmade crafts. Joining us for the chat were two vendors who are participating in the event as well as small businesses located within the Strasburg Emporium.

Jamie & Jonathan Fuller (and their children) with Meliora Vintage / Meliora 3-D told us about their business, their 3D printing, and how excited they are to be part of VIntage in the Valley this year. 

Todd & Julie Bodnar from Bodnar Family Farm are first-time vendors at this year's event and brand new businesses in Strasburg Emporium (booth 23) and told us about the types of things you can find in their space and at their booth during the event.

The event kicks off on Friday evening, March 31, 2023, at Box Office Brewery with a Decades Dance: Prom Edition from 7pm - 10pm - costume contest included.  Start the day on Saturday with a visit to the Strasburg Square to pick up your event map, sip on a glass of Virginia wine from Star in the Valley Winery, and listen to a DJ through the decades. There will be a bounce house in the Wine Garden for those young at heart.
Carriage rides will be offered so you can see how BIG the event spans. Make your way to the Strasburg Town Hall lot to kick off your shopping! The Strasburg Emporium is a HUGE partner for this event, hosting half a dozen live demonstrations, 40+ vendors outside, food trucks, and more live music (not to mention the 60+ vendors inside!) 
A Vintage Car Show will be parked from 10am - 3pm on Holliday Street! Proceeds benefit the Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter. A highlight of the festival is the Vintage Fashion Show hosted by Lydia's Clothes Closet. Their fashion spans from 1920 to present day and hosts over 50 models representing several generations and walks of life. 
Local restaurants will be offering daily specials along with downtown businesses hosting sidewalk sales. The day will wrap up at the town square where Shenandoah Film Collaborative will be showing a 'Movie Under the Stars' at 7pm: Little Shop of Horrors. There will be an Ol' Timers baseball game on Sunday, April 2, 2023.
