Gemstones, Cars, and Craft fairs; One Fun-Filled Weekend!


If you are lucky enough to visit Lyndhurst, Virginia on the weekend of October 6th, you are in for a treat! Although there is never a shortage of family-fun activities near Cabin Creekwood, this weekend in particular offers an overabundance of special events. Here are 3 activities we highly recommend!


The 37th Annual Apple Days Craft Show


Saturday October 6: 9am – 5pm

Sunday October 7: 12pm – 5pm


Join the festivities over at Willow Oak Plaza and find all your special souvenirs. With a wide variety of vendors in attendance, you’ll find a unique selection of candles, art, jewelry, and even handmade furniture at this year’s Apple Days Craft Show. Often referred to as the unofficial kickoff to the holiday season, exclusive Christmas decorations will be offered in sparkly green and red abundance.


Come ready to indulge in everything apples, from apple cider to apple dumplings and even apple butter! Of course, it wouldn’t be a party without the apple pie! With 4,000- 6,000 people expected to be in attendance, make sure to come early because some of these delectable treats are predicted to sell out quickly.

The Oldest Annual British Car Show


October 5-7, 2012


When you’re ready to leave the craft fair, hop on the shuttle bus waiting on site and be whisked off to your next destination! Shuttles will be running back and forth all day from the craft fair to the annual British Car show, held over at Ridgeview Park.


The Shenandoah Valley British Car Club hosts this car show in dedication of British marques cars. In fact, over 200 are expected to be on display—all in a variety of makes, models, and colors. People travel from all over the country to show-off their own marques– some in great condition, others unable to run. This car show doesn’t discriminate; all British marques are welcome!


Not only will visitors enjoy the sights of these fabulous automobiles, true car enthusiasts will love the rare British car parts and memorabilia being offered for sale.


The best part? You are having fun and doing some good! The Car Club encourages guests to bring along can food donations. Of course, if on vacation, canned foods aren’t something you typically have on hand. No need to worry, the majority of generated funds go directly to the Food Bank anyways.
