To celebrate Stafford’s five new LOVEworks signs, Stafford’s local radio station B101.5, and all of our breweries and winery are sharing the love just in time for a Valentine’s Day Instagram Contest. B101.5, Stafford Tourism, and Stafford breweries and winery want YOU to show Stafford some LOVE!

Created as part of a state and local partnership to promote travel and tourism, the artwork is an extension of the 50-year-old “Virginia is for Lovers” brand, one of the most beloved and iconic slogans in the world.
There are more than 250 giant LOVE signs displayed across communities in Virginia. Stafford is thrilled to add its five LOVE signs to the trail and attract visitors to the community.
“Virginia is for Lovers is about doing the things you love to do on vacation with the people you love most,” said Rita McClenny, president and CEO of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. “The new LOVEworks in Stafford County capture that idea perfectly, and gives you an authentic sense of place as it showcases Stafford’s rich and growing beer and wine culture. We are excited that Stafford County along with its breweries and winery will help us share the LOVE with travelers, helping them to discover for themselves why Virginia is for Lovers.”
Each LOVE installation is a reflection of the community in which it stands, and Stafford’s five LOVEworks locations are no exception.
“I am excited to showcase five new LOVEworks signs in the Stafford community,” stated Lisa Logan, Stafford County Tourism Manager. “The Virginia LOVEworks signs are recognized by visitors all over the country and we are eager to join the trail!”
These LOVEworks signs are a great edition to Stafford Tourism’s new Kegs and Corks Savings Pass Trail, a mobile exclusive pass to redeem offers at Stafford’s four breweries and one winery.
