You do not want to miss this event. There are games to play and treats to eat! You can catch a ball or catch up with old friends and make new ones, because, let’s face it, most of you have never met another dog that wasn’t your immediate friend, right!
Bring your people (big & small) and your canine siblings, even if they’re not Goldens.
We would LOVE to see as many of our adopted Goldens and their families as possible!!
Stay tuned to our website for details as the date gets closer!

WHERE:  Town Center, Virginia Beach
Mark your calendars! Get digging in the attic to find your holiday finest! Round up those jingle bell collars! We’ve had a wonderful turnout the past few years, and know that everyone (humans and dogs) had an AMAZING experience. You won’t want to miss out on it this year!! It’s time again to show off our SEVA GRREAT Goldens at the Light up the Town Parade in Virginia Beach. We’re stepping off promptly at 6:00 PM from a NEW LOCATION: Bank Street, between Independence Blvd and Market Street, and the adjacent parking lot. Because of the new building being constructed at Town Center, the parade route has changed some. Our Goldens and their people should be there NO LATER than 5:15 pm. Parade participants are encouraged to park vehicles not participating in the parade in any of the free parking garages located around Town Center. Our Goldens are always a highlight of the parade. We can’t wait to see you there to spread some Christmas cheer and awareness for SEVA GRREAT. Be sure to check your email and our Facebook page for any last minute updates!!

Without your wonderful photos, there can be no calendar!

Hey, all you beautiful Goldens, DON’T BE LAZY!  Get your human companions to keep their cameras on hand for all the cute moments you provide.  YOU, TOO, could be in the 2016 Calendar!

We are in dire need of seasonal pictures to fill our empty calendar.  Last year we had to beg for fall and Halloween pics.  We did get a couple of really GRREAT ones but I know there are more out there to be discovered.2016 calendar contest rules

Yappy Hours! Every Sunday Keswick Vineyards is a big supporter of rescuing animals (we have 16 rescued dogs and cats of our own!) and so Yappy Hours is a weekly event, in which we invite local animal shelters to visit and bring their furry friends that are in need of homes. Everyone is invited to come out and bring their own furry friends and enjoy the company of all, with the end goal being to find some homes for these animals in need. For every bottle opened during Yappy Hours Keswick Vineyards donates a dollar to the visiting animal rescue shelter!
