Fun, Food, and Sorghum! The Annual Sorghum Festival has brought Clifford, Virginia the best music, sorghum syrup, and applebutter for forty years. In addition the jousting tournaments, and much much more. All proceeds will benefit the community!



The Sorghum Festival is our largest fundraiser of the year, and in addition to providing entertainment for our community, it advertises our cause. Since 1973 Ruritans have donated thousands of dollars to local efforts, and local community events. 

Friends and family from everywhere show up to enjoy the traditional festivities of the Clifford Ruritans. You can pig out on delicious local foods, enjoy entertainment such as local bands, the Amherst Dance Academy, the Monacan Indian Showcase.
