It’s our 20th Anniversary issue! Where were you in 2002? We’ll pop the cork to reveal the story of our Premiere Issue. Then it’s off to Staunton to discover the Queen City’s thriving music and arts scene, beautiful Blackburn Inn, and farm-to-table dining at The Shack and Zynodoa. Love listening to old-school vinyl? In Harrisonburg, you’ll discover the vinyl pressing plant working overtime to meet demand. Our holiday pages feature a master florist who makes stunning wreaths, a professional “elf” who decorates stately homes, recipes from five notable Virginia chefs for their favorite holiday side-dishes, and Ashland’s Christmas Parade. It’s also time for our Made in Virginia Awards, featuring Virginia’s finest artisans and innovators. And in our feature, “The 400-Year Commute” meet the historic interpreters—and clothiers, milliners, and cobblers—who bring the stories of Monticello, Colonial Williamsburg, Mount Vernon, and Henricus Historical Park vividly to life. We think you’ll agree, it’s one of our best issues yet.
