2nd Annual Festy Experience set for this weekend

For everyone who would rather spend a weekend camping (than doing pretty much anything else), The Festy Experience is the perfect festival. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail and Wintergreen Resort is an ideal settling to spend the weekend. And unlike many major festivals, special effort is given to make sure the camping is a premier experience.

In addition to the setting, The Festy Experience pairs up with the Virginia Off-Road Series for the Devils Backbone Challenge (mountain bike race) and Blue Ridge Outdoors for the Blue Ridge Burn (5k/10k trail run). Both events are just up the road from the Concert Grounds.


The value of amazing food can’t be understated and The Festy makes sure there is quality local sustenance for everyone.  Benjamin Thompson of The Rock Barn curates the full food experience.  Devils Backbone Brewery will be open for business all weekend.

The primary beer selection on site will be from local brewers including Devils Backbone and Starr Hill Brewery…and select wine from local Nelson County vineyards.


This year’s festival will also feature a large number of musical performers.  In addition to the Main and Southern Stages, we’ll also have some great programming inside Devils Backbone after outside programming ends, as not to disturb our very gracious neighbors. Our High Country Hub centered in between the campground and the concert grounds will host a variety of workshops and acoustic songwriters.   Click on the artists name below to learn more about them.
