A new event is debuting in Goochland! The Rassawek Spring Jubilee is a two-day celebration that will showcase the cultural, musical, agrarian and artistic traditions that are the heart and heritage of Goochland County. The Rasaswek Spring Jubilee will feature a variety of activities and demonstrations designed to connect Goochland's unique rustic past with its current crafts, talents and commerce.
The Rassawek Spring Jubilee will take place on May 21 and 22 and will feature a jam-packed music stage, fascinating Virginia traditional arts demonstrations, unique youngster activities and delicious wine tastings throughout the day. The event also boasts a fishing contest in the many lakes on the property, wholesome food provided by local producers and farmers, and dozens of gifted artists and antique vendors.
Rassawek has a rich history that begs to be shared with the community. The Cherokee cabin, originally built in 1910, the 1900’s Lord Burnham greenhouse and the Sailor cabin, built in 1844, were all rebuilt and restored to amazing accuracy and beauty.
Rassawek Spring Jubilee operates under the Goochland Chamber of Commerce, a 501c6, and was created to provide an annual signature event for the county and region. The Organizing Committee consists of local business owners, residents, county representatives and others who are interested in promoting all that Goochland has to offer to the broader community. Proceeds from a successful Jubilee will benefit local projects and improvements that enhance the Goochland experience.
