About

Rassawek Vineyard is a charming and unique wedding venue nestled in the heart of Goochland county, Virginia. Situated between central Virginia's two largest cities, it's the perfect place to say 'I Do!'. History rich landscapes and buildings meet to create the most breathtaking backdrop for your wedding. Over the past 20 years, Rassawek has grown into a destination that features one-of-a-kind, customizable packages that let the creative heart shine on your most special day.

Rassawek's expansive rolling hills, vineyards, ponds, and forest, offer three unique event spaces which cover a range of budgets and wedding sizes:

The Hilltop, an exemplary location for a smaller wedding, is a budget friendly option that can hold up to 50 guests. The featured ceremony gazebo overlooking the hills of our vineyard and a charming white barn for the reception are the perfect hosts for your intimate wedding.

Cherokee Waterfront, nestled amongst the Chardonnay vines, includes use of a 2,000 square foot log cabin, quaint greenhouse perfect for cocktail hour, and a 40 x 60 peak pole tent for your ceremony and reception space. Hosting up to 125 guests, this location allows for picturesque views and a connection to Rassawek's vast outdoor spaces.

Our newest venue on the property, The Pavilion, is located near our train station overlooking the hills of the Piedmont. This 7,000 square foot building boasts large glass windows and doors giving you almost 360 views of the surrounding landscape. Step just outside onto the spacious wrap around brick patio, and take in the views while enjoying a signature cocktail out of the original Short Pump garage bar or serve guests ice cream sandwiches from the quaint country grocery store. Hosting up to 180 guests, this space is our largest and most unique venue on the property where southern charm meets modern industrial .


Unique Features

All of the structures and buildings on the Rassawek property were once doomed for demolition, after being relocated to our property, they were refurbished onsite to create one of the most unique wedding venues in the area. At Rassawek, our restored cabins and train cars are what set us apart. With the weekend package add on option, couples get exclusive use of the entire property as well as overnight stays in our cabins and converted train cars that can accommodate 25 guests to offer a full immersive experience into life at Rassawek.

    100000% Recommend Rassawek!

    Rassawek is the perfect place to get married! We cannot sing their praises highly enough. We had a camping wedding on site at Rassawek. The night started at the Cherokee cabin for the ceremony & reception, and ended at the train cars for overnight camping and a breakfast food truck the next day. The team at Rassawek was so supportive and had some great ideas of how to utilize their property to its fullest potential (complete with a steam engine exit!). Rassawek is a wonderful venue that allows each wedding planned there to feel unique and authentic to the bride and groom. Get creative and the Rassawek team will help make it happen!! The whole team was incredibly friendly, accommodating, and easy to work with. All of our guests loved Rassawek and many went back for the fall festival a few weeks later so that they could explore the property even more. We loved our experience working with the Rassawek team and would highly recommend them!

    Phenomenal Wedding Venue!!

    This wedding venue is remarkably stunning!! We loved everything about it from the day of our first visit. From the wedding venue staff (who were super helpful and accommodating and truly sincere and genuine), to the rustic cabins we were able to utilize for the bride and groom parties, and the beautiful covered bridge (where we had the actual ceremony) was everything I could have imagined!! It also had been slightly rainy that day and the night before which made things wet for the reception and they gracefully accommodated our wedding party for the reception to another location without hesitation. There are amazing views every inch of the venue literally! They offer different options for wedding settings in their packages. We highly recommend this venue. It was beyond anything I could have ever imagined as far as the majestic setting! They have a marvelous team!! I highly suggest checking them out!

This family friendly festival will be a unique event for people of all ages with many varieties of exhibits, demonstrations, music, food, drinks, entertainment and more. This festival will be held in a different area than the Spring Jubilee so festival guests will be able to experience two unique festivals at Rassawek. The Autumn Festival is run by our non-profit entity Rassawek Ventures. Our mission at Rassawek Ventures is to preserve traditional skills and crafts to educate and inspire our future. Our goal at Rassawek Ventures is to bring awareness around vocational education and to see the value of working with your hands. We want to show future generations that a career in trades can be a rewarding and fulfilling path to take. A portion of the proceeds from this festival will go towards creating opportunities for individuals wishing to attend a trade or technical school. During the Autumn Festival guests can expect to see many of these trade skills that we wish to preserve come alive through demonstrations and exhibits. There will be onsite blacksmithing, carpentry, masonry, mechanic, lineman, sawmilling, equipment operators and more demonstrating, educating, and promoting their trade with the public. Guests can also expect to see other exhibits such as our newest area, Rassawek Station, which features a small train car village, lodge cabin and general store. Antique cars and tractors will be on display throughout the festival.
There will be plenty of entertainment at the festival including live bluegrass music, a truck and tractor pull managed by Dragon Motorsports, helicopter rides and crane rides. Kids will have an abundance of activities to participate in including a haybale maze, pumpkin patch, interactive painting, farm chores, live farm animals provided by Goochland 4-H, barrel train rides and more!There will be plenty of food and drink available for guests including multiple food trucks and food vendors. We will also have three beer tents, a couple wineries & a cidery for purchase by the glass or the bottle.

Date: From 10/21/2023 to 10/22/2023 Schedule all day
