April 15, 2015 67th Annual Shad Planking - Wakefield, Virginia
The Shad Planking traces its origin to the early 1930s when a group of friends gathered together at Wrenn’s Mill in Isle Of Wight County during the spring running of the shad in the James River. They planked the shad after the tradition of native Virginia Indians and they talked politics after the tradition of their fathers before them. As the tradition grew, the Wakefield Ruritan Club assumed sponsorship of the event in 1949. Generations of Virginia politicians have attended and addressed the Shad Planking gathering. The annual Spring rite, held during the shad run in the James River, is a unique assembly of the many and varying views of the people and politics of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Benefits Wakefied community organizations. The menu features planked shad cooked over an open fire.
