Spring and holiday fun in Christiansburg

Once upon a time in this area of Southwest Virginia if residents desired large-scale seasonal events they traveled from the north. east, south, and west to Roanoke or Salem. Today most localities are offering their own brand of spring and holiday activities in their own neck of the woods and one is Sinkland Farms located at 3060 Riner Road in Christiansburg which began as a dairy farm run by the Sink family in the 1980s,

Although they continue to farm and care for the land they are now also an event venue. Sinkland Farms offer additional activities on the property including rustic weddings and a sunflower festival on 8 acres of sunflower fields. There are more than 20 different varieties of flowers and over 200,000 blooms and the Sunflower Festival is slated to become a new summer tradition for families.

Easter Egg-Travaganza

Sinkland Farms has been voted "Most Unique Festival" in Southwest Virginia by Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine and New River Valley residents can invite visitors to their neck of the woods for a fun time. In addition WSLS10 recently announced that the Christiansburg venue will be hosting its first-ever Egg-Travaganza on Saturday, April 1, and Sunday, April 2, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There will be a full spring-packed weekend of activities planned that include music, food, and fun. There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt throughout the day for all ages. Children can also visit with the Easter Bunny and as a bonus, the Sinkland Farm’s animals which include baby chicks and ducks will be on display. Families will also have an opportunity to sing along to their favorite nursery rhyme songs and hear a retelling of the Easter Story.
