The heart of Colonial Virginia lies at Williamsburg. The old Colonial Capital is at its brightest and best in the fall, with perfect weather beckoning all to come out and enjoy. The centerpiece of fall festivities there is the annual Williamsburg Harvest Celebration. The five-day event (November 11-15) takes place in Williamsburg-proper and neighboring locales, and is all about Virginia’s traditional fall harvest of good things to eat straight from nearby land and water to the table. Top Virginia chefs, winemakers, sommeliers and food purveyors bring together their talents and the results include tapas crawls, special chef’s dinners, wine and chocolate tastings, an oyster roast, chowder festival and cooking demonstrations.
