The Rockbridge Mountain Music & Dance Festival is not your usual festival. There's no contest and no fancy line-up of big-name acts. No crowds. No pressure to arrive early to get a spot because there's plenty of room! Beloved musician Mike Seeger had a vision for Glen Maury Park: hold a mountain music festival that featured dancing and no playing contests. So he got the festival off the ground, and it's being continued by committed, music-loving area residents. The weekend after Labor Day, the event pretty much closes out the festival season. It takes place in beautiful Glen Maury Park in Buena Vista, Virginia, situated beside the Blue Ridge Parkway and five miles east of Lexington. Though the festival starts officially on Friday, some folks like to extend their trip and arrive earlier. The park is always open for camping, and you may arrive any time.
If you love dancing and old-time music in a mellow setting, Rockbridge is the festival for you. Camping available onsite at the beautiful Glen Maury Park. For more information, www.rockbridgefestival.org.
Admission Fee: $14 per day pass, $25 per two-day pass, $13 per campsite per day, $25 per campsite for weekend
