PETE'S PICKS        

There is a reason FloydFest was voted "Best Outdoor Festival" by Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine - it's simply an incredible experience you don't want to miss.  It's much more than just a music festival - four days of camping, 10 music stages, beer and wine gardens, performance art, global village, kids' universe, craft workshops, disc golf, mountain bike trail, and lots more.

So come out to FloydFest, even if it's just for the day, and stop by the Roanoke Outside tent (located in the Global Village).
