Virginia Green

Red Wing Roots Music Festival
Mt Solon, VA

Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.

Red Wing Roots Music Festival

The Red Wing Roots Music Festival is located at Natural Chimneys Park in Mt Solon, VA.

As we feature quality live entertainment and outdoor recreation opportunities, we want to incorporate as many environmentally responsible practices as possible.

No vendor is allowed to sell disposable water bottles. We will be providing free water and requiring reusable cups in the beer & wine garden.
