Brews, Brine, & Wine

May 31 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

<h1 class="tribe-events-single-event-title">Brews, Brine, & Wine</h1>

Please join us for our popular kickoff event! The casual and fun Brews, Brine & Wine on May 31, 2024.
Come enjoy oysters and beer while visiting the Plein Air artists who will be interpreting the beautiful surroundings on their canvases, creating small works that will be available for sale at the event. Art, food, and beautiful scenery will make for a lovely evening for the whole family. Co-hosted by the Fairfield Foundation, Brews, Brine & Wine will be held at Machicomoco State Park this year.

Timberneck Farm at Machicomoco State Park sits on land that was a part of the Powhatan empire, just downriver from Werowocomoco, home of the paramount chief Powhatan and his daughter Pocahontas. The new state park serves as a “gateway” to the Tsenacomoco region – land that Virginia’s Algonquin tribes occupied for hundreds of years before European settlement at Jamestown Island.
