We are doing a series this month reviewing different festivals that we love. Today we will be featuring a newer favorite that we actually went to 10 years ago when we were vending tee-shirts for a Denver based print company. Sidebar: A most fond moment was the late night show featuring a customized car turned life size dragon that breathed fire…..AWESOME! Today we present the amazing and ever growing, community based Floyd Fest. Floyd Fest is based in Floyd, VA and is located right off of the Blue Ridge Parkway with amazing campsites and views. I mean it’s worth the trip just for the drive/road trip getting there!
Once the festival kicks off (officially on Wednesday!) it is just a stream of mindful, happy people from all types of backgrounds. A lot of families, a lot of veteran festivarians and a large number of younger newer festival goers as well. Always a good time in VA with some epic food vendors (Sugar Shack “Breakfast Thing”……say no more), always an incredible lineup with multiple stages to choose from with plenty of space on the grass fields to spread out your Tarpestry, eat some of the delicious vendor food, kick back and listen to some epic live shows. After our hiatus from our first Floyd in 2010 Tarpestry has vended every Floyd since 2016 and have found that Floyd Fest is deeply rooted in good causes through the festival and local VA communities. We love every minute of it and are hopeful/excited for this year! String Cheese in the line up!! Hopefully we’ll see you there.
