Dog Days Weekend 2018 [VA]

Dog Days Weekend

Staunton, VA
August 3-5.

Staunton is the perfect launching pad for some of the best riding anywhere. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 17 miles from the hotel and several GREAT routes into WV start or are very close. 

There are many local wineries and breweries for after hours. It is only a 3 block walk to the restored downtown area where there are many choices for food and beverages. Staunton is a great location to bring a non-riding spouse or partner! There are many things to see and do around town. Shops, theaters and museums just to mention a few. 

Howard Johnson Express - a limited block of rooms will be held until 6/30/18 at a reduced price - book early. Nightly room rate is $61.00 + tax. Includes continental breakfast, off street parking and a pool.

Camping is available 9 miles away at a KOA campground, 484 Walnut Hills Road, Staunton, VA (540-337-3920).



"Shakin at the Station" is a live band that performs on the street every Thursday during the summer in downtown Staunton. Adult beverages are served and there is a variety of music types week to week. Their 2018 calendar has not been posted yet, but if you make it into town on Thursday, it''s well worth the $2 donation to get in. Wharf/Johnson Street Parking Area, 12 B Byers Street, Staunton, VA.
