Traffic impact to the park!
Blacksburg Fork and Cork is a wine, food and art extravaganza with the proceeds benefiting The Blacksburg Partnership. The Blacksburg Partnership is a non-profit, independent economic development organization focused on projects that attract visitors and retail prospects. Partnership projects include the development of property, revitalization of retail districts, special events, and community arts endeavors such as Gobble de Art and the Collaborative for the Arts. The Partnership is also known for three signature events that take place every year: Blacksburg Fork & Cork, Blacksburg Brew Do and the Virginia Cheese Festival.
Attendees can take advantage of the free shuttle from Virginia Tech’s Chicken Hill parking lot.
