You can’t have a festival without music! This year the Festival’s Music Committee has pulled together 7 days of rock, country, bluegrass, and Celtic music for our fans to enjoy.
Held at the Abingdon Farmers Market Pavilion, these shows are sheltered from most rain and sun. Bring your own chair or use one of ours and enjoy great music, the region’s best food trucks, and beer and wine from some of your favorite summer brands.
