Monticello's 7th annual Heritage Harvest Festival gets underway Friday.
This year there will be even more food and events, including performances from professional musicians – some that are also playing the Lockn' Festival in Nelson County.
There will also be chef demonstrations, food tastings, and a children's petting zoo. People will also get a chance to tour Thomas Jefferson's gardens and see unique plants, common in his day.
"This is a wonderful place, so to bring them here for a day, it's really to bring the people back to the beauty of our world," said Gabriele Rausse, head of gardens and ground at Monticello.
Pre-festival events start Friday. The main festival will be Saturday on Monticello's West Lawn from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
