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. Those who like structure will find plenty to do, while others rarely leave the campground area, choosing to play and visit around the "neighborhood" where a laid-back, low-key air prevails.
