In 2014, downtown Harrisonburg was named Virginia’s first culinary district. There are more than 40 restaurants, bars, diners, and delis within walking distance from the conference hotel. You’ll find wood-fired pizza, Asian fusion fare, gelato and pastries, global comfort food, authentic Indian cuisine, tacos and tequila, small batch coffee, craft beer, and so much more!
