Hee-Haw! Donktoberfest 2017 has been confirmed for Sunday, October 1st at Bold Rock Hard Cider. Stay tuned for more information and details coming soon, and be sure to keep an eye on the Donktoberfest Facebook page too!
We estimate that between 1500-2000 people were in attendance, and it was the perfect day. The weather was ideal, the river was full and clear, the donkeys all loved getting loved on, the volunteers rocked it, the food was exceptional, and the craft vendors added extra fun. We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors, so please show your appreciation for them:
Bold Rock Hard Cider
Nelson County, Virginia
Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue / Donkey Rescue International
Forest Hill Endodontics
Virginia Donkey Rescue
The Mark Addy Inn
And a huge thanks to all the individuals who donated as supporters, who volunteered their time, and made this the great event it was.

We are very excited to announce that Studio 43 Pottery will be joining our exclusive list of craft vendors for Donktoberfest 2016! The unusual works are inspired by nature and exotic textures, and are treated like a canvas, using no potting wheel. Visit their facebook page to explore recent works.
We are very excited to have Evergreen Lavender Farm join our exclusive list of craft and other vendors at Donktoberfest 2016. Their collection of lavender based skin, bath and home products is the perfect compliment to what our other vendors will be selling.
