Blue Ridge Folklife Festival

October 27, 2012

For nearly 40 years on the fourth Saturday of October, the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival has brought together a host of musicians, moonshiners, craftspeople, cooks, motorheads, mule jumpers, horse pullers, coon dog racers, antique tractor buffs, and old-time gamers for a celebration of the rich heritage and traditions of the region.  Our festival participants are the real thing, sharing folk traditions that have been a part of their families and/or communities for years.

The Blue Ridge Folklife Festival is the largest event of its kind in Virginia, and there’s nothing like it in the Commonwealth.  We feature performers, artisans, foods, and activities not found at typical craft shows, fairs, and festivals.  The New York Times has called the BRFF “thoroughly authentic.”
