Shad Planking is a classic Virginia political institution where candidates, elected officials, staff, and activists from all sides of the political spectrum gather together to enjoy smoked shad fish and some good-natured political debate. The event has been held every year since 1949 at the Wakefield Club to herald the arrival of spring, with attendance increasing in size from the original 300 guests to over 2,000 today.
