New Look & New Features!
Just like Fine WINE, We are getting better with Age!
Official Announcement!!! As much as we have planned and were looking forward to celebrating our 10th year in the designated BRIDGE location with LAKE views, we have decided it is best that we do change the venue back to original location due to high wind chances. It makes a big difference when your above water, it might still be breezy uptown, but we won’t blow away like we would on the bridge. 😉 We did take this into account when all the planning began, so we did plan to have past location secured for that reason. So, we will try the bridge again next year. We feel it is best decision for our vendors and attendees. …! Join us at 412 Virginia Avenue for our 10 year celebration of the Lake Country Wine Festival in historic downtown Clarksville! Come t one of the most favorable WINE FESTIVALS in our area!

Live Acoustical for Lake Country Wine Festival
Jeff & Brian Wine Festival musical favorites, Brian Parks and Jeff Bailey will be performing live acoustical music at the Ninth Annual “Lake Country Wine Festival” on April 9 , from noon-5 pm in Downtown Clarksville. Parks and Bailey have roots to Lake Country, as they both grew up in Chase City; they have been playing music together for more than 13 years. Their music genre goes from Van Morrison to Bob Segar to the Allman Brothers—the best of rock, blues, and pop. Both are accomplished musicians with their vocals and both play guitar; Brian also plays harmonica and saxophone. Not only will they entertain those at the Wine Festival with their music, they will also entertain with their jokes and fun-loving conversations—these fellows really like to have a good time. They perform monthly in Raleigh and Cary, as well as performing locally in Clarksville and South Boston, and South Hill.
