Inaugural Share the Love Fest set for mid-May

On Saturday, May 16, bring the whole family to Lewisburg for Share the Love Fest. From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., celebrate independent Lewisburg businesses by shopping, eating, and enjoying all things local. This is a great opportunity to find the perfect gift for graduation, Father’s Day, and summer. The downtown farmers markets will also be active throughout the morning.

Festivities will kick off at 8 a.m. with the Fruity 5K Run/Walk on Church Street in downtown Lewisburg. This is an annual fundraiser for Communities in Schools. The course includes a combination of inclines that challenge and declines that reward. Progress is celebrated with doses of color throughout and a color blast at the finish line. This vibrant event celebrates being healthy and an active lifestyle for kids and families.

After the race, the Greenbrier Artists and other independents will showcase and sell their work at “Artisan’s Row” on Church Street. This area is anticipated to be full with photographers, illustrators, crafters, painters, sculptors and more.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., you will enjoy the sounds of aspiring and professional local musicians at the Greenspace. The Greenbrier Valley Winter Music Festival “Spring Edition” is sponsoring these performances. Cari Cohen will offer Tarot card readings on Washington Street. Check out Troy’s Lemon Art Stand at the Greenspace where you can get a cup of lemonade in exchange for art. Art supplies will be provided.
