SOLD OUT – Thank you for your enthusiasm for conservation and for making this such a successful event.

Boots and Barbecue is a celebration of all the things that drive Northern Neck Land Conservancy’s commitment to protecting working farms, waters and woodlands in our region. Each year the event is held in one of the five Northern Neck counties or Essex on the Middle Peninsula – and always on an acreage that is permanently protected by a conservation easement.

“Boots” has quickly become known as one of the most enjoyable outdoor, fried oyster-eating opportunities of the year. This year’s event is on Saturday, September 30 from 1:00 to 4:00 at historic Mount Zion Farm in Lottsburg, VA. It features a delicious barbecue buffet, live music, and exhibitors and demonstrations that reflect the rural character of the Northern Neck: You won’t want to miss it!

We are grateful to the generous event sponsors who demonstrate their commitment to our community by supporting Northern Neck Land Conservancy through Boots and Barbecue. We also appreciate the local exhibitors who help make this event so enjoyable.
