This annual family-oriented event is a wonderful celebration of the arts, crafts, food, and culture of Southside Virginia. The first Saturday in May in Farmville has developed a reputation as the “BEST SMALL TOWN FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD” offering something for everyone - a 10K run, bands performing on four stages, organized children's activities (games, art, shows), lots and lots of food, an art show on the lawn, a craft show (75+ vendors), classic cars, and more! A spectacular fireworks display completes the festivities. In its third decade, the Festival has developed a reputation with local, regional, and national artists, crafters, and entertainers. Free parking and shuttle buses available.
