Richard Bland College of William & Mary is announcing its 3rd Annual Pecan Festival in the Grove. The 2018 Pecan Festival will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 11:00am – 5:00pm. Last year’s festival welcomed over 12,500 people to Richard Bland College, the largest number of visitors to experience an on-campus event in college history. The 2018 Pecan Festival will offer food, drink, crafts, children’s activities, entertainment and music. The day starts with The Remnants performing classic rock hits and ends with powerhouse band Sweet Justice closing out the day in their first appearance at the festival. The grove will be packed with vendors selling products ranging from homemade salsa, fine soaps, jewelry, baked goods and clothing. Family-themed entertainment includes a kids’ zone (face painting, games, bouncey house) and a hayride. With nearly 1,000 pecan trees situated on its 750+ acre campus, Richard Bland College of William & Mary is home to the oldest and largest pecan grove in Virginia.
