It’s strawberry season in Fauquier County! Head on out to Messick’s this weekend to pick your own fruit and enjoy all the family-friendly activities scheduled. Kids will be thrilled to try the Barrel Train Rides, slides, kids tattoos, hayrides, bounce pillow, petting goats, and a candy drop. Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the festival area or the strawberry picking fields due to certifications.

Spring Market
Sat. May 14, 12-5 p.m.
Old Bust Head Brewing Company
7134 Farm Station Road, Warrenton (Vint Hill)

Come out to the taproom as we join up with a long list of local food trucks (Jambalaya Bros., Sexi-Mexi Burritos), crafters, and artisans for a Spring Market celebration of farmed and crafted goods at Old Bust Head. While you shop, sip, and savor, listen to live music by Graham Stone on our outdoor stage. But the highlight of the day may just be the baby goats (12-3 p.m.) by the local 4-H club. Visit the goats and browse their selection of handmade goat milk soap. Fun for the whole family! Vint Hill Home will be hosting their Mother's Day Outdoor Market across the street, so be sure to pay them a visit too.

Cars and Coffee
Sat. May 14, 8-11 a.m.
Callaway Classics, 8323 W. Main St., Marshall

Cars and Coffee is a relaxed car show that takes place in the morning where people bring their cars and hang out with other car people. There is no judging or assigned spots. Classics of any make are welcome, and newer specialty vehicles as well. Don’t have a classic or specialty vehicle? No problem, you’re more than welcome to stop by and check out everyone else’s rides. It’s a great event to check out some cool cars and maybe learn a thing or two about them. Happy Family Ranch food truck will be selling breakfast and coffee. Please be respectful of other people’s cars and do not touch them. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. This is a great event to teach them some history and also a valuable life lesson of respecting other people’s belongings.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s what all local citizens want to do. Go have beers with cops at a brewery.
