FloydFest, a world music and arts festival held just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Floyd, Va., is gearing up for its 14th annual event July 22-26 with a stellar lineup and a keener focus on family, community and celebrating the Appalachian mountains.
And this year, the organizers have selected Appalachian Voices as the featured nonprofit, offering festivalgoers a chance to make a donation to our organization when purchasing their tickets, and even donating a portion of their proceeds to support our work! Quite simply, it’s a natural partnership with a festival that celebrates our natural and cultural heritage and an organization that works every day — for nearly two decades — to protect the mountains, rivers and people.
We’ll be working with FloydFest folks in the coming months to dream up fun and exciting ways to engage attendees and let them know how they can become involved in protecting the mountains we all love. Tickets are already on sale, so get yours now and come join us for two, three or even five days of joyous dancing, phenomenal music and heartfelt community. Visit appvoices.org/floydfest and stay tuned for more information.
