Take the Family to the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival

Who else is excited about The Blue Ridge Folklife Festival coming up on October 25th? This year marks the 41st annual festival and for many it has become a family tradition to attend each year. Blue Ridge Folklife Festival

Festival goers will descend upon Ferrum College to enjoy a good time whether they are young or old. While it’s hard to capture all of the various activities that take place during this one-day event, allow me to highlight just a few of my favorites.

The vintage farm and industrial machinery provide for a step back in history as well as numerous demonstrations that feature rock crushing and wheat threshing.

Working animal demos and contests will highlight sheep herding, mule jumping, weight pulling, coon dog water races and a few other interesting competitions. Read More→
