If you’ve been visiting the blog for a while, you know how my family and I love visiting Kings Dominion every year. We always have a great time every time we visit!
If you and your family are planning to go visit Kings Dominion soon, you’ll be glad to know about their brand new event, Taste of Virginia, happening on Saturdays and Sundays from May 6 to May 21.
At this exciting, mouth-watering event, you’ll be taken to a delicious journey through the commonwealth as you taste sample-size dishes inspired by regions such as Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater including crab cakes and seared oysters. For a sneak preview of the Taste of Virginia event, you can watch videos on Kings Dominion’s Facebook page.
Taste the delicacies of colonial Virginia with Smithfield ham and cheese empanadas or sweet potato and roast duck popovers.
Love desserts? Taste of Virginia has that covered for you too, with peanut butter fudge, fried Winesap apple pies and much more!
Kings Dominion park has also partnered with several of Virginia’s world-class breweries, wineries and distilleries to help quench your thirst featuring favorites like Hardywood, Copper Fox Distillery, Legend Brewing Company, Center of the Universe and many more.
And while you’re enjoying all the great food, you’ll also be grooving to the sounds of the BEST local live bands, and this Saturday, May 13, Taste of Virginia will feature appearances by two special guests:
