The Virginia Herb Festival was founded in 2009 by Sunflower Cottage in Middletown, VA. Sunflower Cottage is a herb farm and garden center that sits on 40 acres of farm land in the Shenandoah River Valley. The setting and our mission are ideal for this event. Our mission is to provide fun and entertainment centered around the delight in herbs and the agrarian lifestyle. Admission is $5.00 per person and children age 12 and under, accompanied by an adult, are free. The admission charge is good for both days and after you are in, all programs are free.
