The Blue Ridge Parkway is known as "America's Favorite Drive," and in a few days, one of America's favorite events, located right off the Parkway in Floyd, Virginia, begins. FloydFest 19 organizers will open the gates July 24th and welcome fans from all of the world. They'll enjoy a five-day celebration of music and art, while basking in the beauty of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia. Oh yeah... they'll be entertained by 100 performers, musicians, storytellers, and poets, on nine stages featuring a wide variety of music formats including rock, bluegrass, reggae, folk, Yiddish, Cajun, or Zydeco, African, Appalachian, Americana and more.
FloydFesters say the 2019 theme, "Voyage Home," speaks to "returning to the source of where we all come from, Mother Earth - it is there where we find ourselves most at home."
