The 2022 Appomattox Oyster Fest will be taking place at DeVault Family Vineyards on Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 11:00AM to 6:00PM. They are located at 247 Station Lane Concord, VA 24538. 


The Appomattox Oyster Fest 2022 is being held at the DeVault Family Vineyards, located at 247 Station Lane, Concord, VA 24538. The event will be held on the 23rd of April 2022, starting at 11AM and ending at 6PM. 

You are solely responsible for any items that you sell and the collections and reporting of any applicable sales or other taxes. We will not collect and report any taxes on your behalf.

If you're application was "Denied", it was most likely because another "exclusive" vendor got their application in first. "Exclusive" vendors are those who can only have one representative at an event per company policy, such as Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Paparazzi, etc.

Another reason may be that the event has too many vendors selling the same products such as jewelry, clothing, candles, etc.

Finally, and we hope we don't encounter this, is that you have been "Denied" due to previous problems and you are not welcome back to the event.

If you would like to get a more detailed answer, please email us at for that information.

If you were "Denied", you can still apply for the next event and hopefully have better luck getting "Approved".
