Busy October!
The twelfth annual Yadkin Valley Grape Festival was held
under gorgeous blue skies in downtown Yadkinville on
October 17th. Visitors had great weather to enjoy Yadkin
Valley Wines from 23 wineries, great food, and music from
“Rockers” and “Phatt City” performing on our Carolina
Carports stage. Wine Glass Sponsors for this year were the
Yadkin County/Town of Yadkinville Tourism Development
Authority and Indera Mills. Entertainment sponsors were the
Jonesville Tourism Development Authority and Yadkin Bank.
Gold Sponsors included James Williams & Company, and
Crissman Mendenhall Steelman Insurance and Financial
Services. Silver sponsors included WorkForce Unlimited, Duke
Energy, Primo Water, P.O.D.S. of the Piedmont Triad, Hugh
Chatham Memorial Hospital, Carolina Carports, and the Town
of Yadkinville. Bronze sponsors included Mountain Valley
Hospice, Yadtel, Kelly Office Solutions, and Big B Auto Parts.
In-kind sponsors included Ray’s Golf Cars and Reavis Welding
and Repair. And on October 19, the Chamber hosted its first
ever trip – to China! Photo above shows the group of 31, along
with our guide for part of the trip, in the centuries old Lingering
Gardens in Suzhou, China. We’ll be sharing reports from our
