Donktoberfest 2019

Please join us for the 4th annual Donktoberfest at the beautiful Bold Rock Cidery meadow along the Rockfish River in Nellysford, Virginia. Admission is free, and a portion of Bold Rock Hard Cider sales that day will benefit Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue.  Donkeys will be there mingling with the crowd, posing with guests for selfies, and available for huge donkey hugs throughout the day.

Donktoberfest is a new twist on the traditional fall festival with a uniquely Americana feel. Instead of beer as the focus, Bold Rock Hard Cider takes center stage. Donkeys provide the fun. And, live donkeytonk music is the new norm. Food trucks supply dining options, and activities are available throughout the day.
