Grayson Highlands State Park is perhaps the most scenic state park in Virginia‚ and thanks to the Rugby Rescue Squad and Fire Department sponsors‚ it is also home to the Grayson Highlands Fall Festival. This year's festival is Saturday, September 27 & Sunday, 28 from 10:00AM till 5:00PM.
Since 1976 the Rugby Volunteer Rescue Squad and Fire Department, Inc. and Grayson Highlands State Park have entertained tens of thousands of people each year with their live exhibits of Appalachian culture. Step back into a simple age when horses and mules ground cane into juice to be boiled into sorghum or molasses; when apple cider was the soft drink of the time; when fresh apples were cooked in a copper kettle over an open fire all day long to render apple butter; when Saturday night was reserved for fiddling; and making music with the neighbors. Such was the lifestyle of the early Appalachian pioneers.
Come out and see the leaves in their peak colors at 4400 ft.
