America’s Got Talent Finalist to Perform at Richard Bland College’s 5th Annual Pecan Festival
Richard Bland College of William & Mary invites all to attend the College’s 5th annual Pecan Festival on Saturday, November 6 from 11 am to 5 pm. Bring your family and friends to the Grove on RBC’s beautiful campus to celebrate the changing of the seasons. There will be a variety of craft beers, cider, and wine.
The Pecan Festival is thrilled to feature Aidan Bryant, a teen aerialist performance artist from Prince George who was the runner-up on Season 16 of America’s Got Talent. He will be performing at 12:45 pm. Popular local band Smoke & Wine will also be performing throughout the day. The Richmond Flying Squirrels mascots, Nutsy & Nutasha, will be on hand to entertain and mingle with with the crowd, along with performances by local dance troupes Aspire Dance Academy and Art of Rhythm Dance Company.
Festival-goers will be able to interact with farm animals at the petting zoo, and the Prince George Animal Control Department will be offering on-site adoptions. This year Pecan Festival has also added a cornhole tournament, a hay bale maze for kids, and a local photographer will be onsite taking fall photos. More than 80 vendors will be on-site with products ranging from local honey, candles, baked goods, jewelry, and more. The festival is also excited to have local vendors joining the festivities from Richland’s Dairy and Mrs. Yoder’s Doughnuts.
Richard Bland College is home to the oldest & largest pecan groves in Virginia. There are nearly 1,000 pecan trees on the grounds. Each year the pecans are harvested and proceeds are used to advance student success and maintain the groves.
