Children's Fun

Bring the kids for a free ride in the barrel train. Also, enjoy face painting, a kite-making class, and kite-flying contest.


The open, rolling hills and gentle breezes of Montpelier are a perfect place to "go fly a kite." Bring yours or join our kite-making class for a nominal fee. Kite contests, stunt flying, and aerial demonstrations provided by Wings Over Washington Kite Club, an affiliate of the American Kite Association.

The Montpelier Wine Festival is organized by the Orange County Chamber of Commerce and James Madison's Montpelier - the historic home of James Madison.
