The Inaugural Festy Experience
The Festy came; saw; conquered. The brainchild of hosts and two-night headliners The Infamous Stringdusters, the Festy was created to combine a love of music and outdoor adventure into one weekend-long experience. The weekend of October 9-10 dawned clear, sunny, and warm-- enough so that hundreds of attendees, competitors, musicians, and campers could come together under the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains to celebrate. With a road race and a mountain bike race Saturday and Sunday morning, respectively, The Festy continued into the afternoons and evenings with dozens of musical acts. Here's hoping that the experience is repeated, for years to come.
