Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Foundation is an organized bicycle ride where riders get to choose the distance best for them and stop for chef-prepared bites at farms along the way. Its mission is to highlight and support the symbiotic relationship between cyclists, farmers, and beautiful landscapes. The rides promote physical activity in a fun and supportive environment, create achievable challenges for people of all ages and abilities, and result in social good.

The Farm to Fork Fondo rides are held throughout the spring, summer, and fall in eight locations throughout the country.

Some participating locations in Frederick County this year include Belle Grove Plantation (where all routes begin), Marker Miller Orchards and Farm Market, Richards Fruit Market, and Valley Roots Farm.

“Type Your Story” Type In

In collaboration with hosts Walking Mall Poet and Sofia Syeda, InnoVault invites the current residents of the Shenandoah Valley to immerse themselves in the Type Your Story type-in.

It is a free opportunity for residents of all ages to tap into their creativity and use working typewriters to illustrate a memory or their daily lives through the written word.

The artistic and interactive space will exhibit stories, poems, and paintings by local artist, Pam Klein, that have been collected during Spring 2021, and encourages attendees to walk around the room and immerse themselves into one-page stories, lessons, and lives.

To preserve personal and diverse histories before and during the pandemic, participants will have the option to submit the collected anonymous entries into a published book!

InnoVault welcomes all ages and walks of life to type their story.
Stop by to submit an entry, check out typewriters, view paintings, or to read stories on display.

Pre-registration is recommended but walk-ins are welcome. This event is free and open to the public.
