Craft offerings include jewelry, handmade toys, photography and fine art, handcrafted items for the home and yard, pottery, hand bags, and personal accessories. Festival food includes hot dogs, hamburgers, barbeque chicken, crab cakes, fresh-squeezed lemonade, gyros, kettle corn, funnel cakes, steak and cheese, and shaved ice treats. Many vendors come from Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and West Virginia, but some come from as far away as New Hampshire, Florida, and Michigan to sell their wares at the festival. Performers delight festival-goers from the steps of the historic Old Courthouse; entertainers include local dance academies and Shenandoah Travelers bluegrass. The Warrenton Spring Festival Committee will judge the artisans and craftsmen applications received and allocate spaces determined by information received and prior observance. Applicants must send three (3) pictures of their craft or food booth with application and a stampted self-addressed envelope.
