Floyd, Virginia, at the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is known for its eclectic mix of artisans and musicians, long time natives, farmers, retirees and homesteaders seeking a sustainable lifestyle.   On the Crooked Road, Virginia's heritage music trail, Floyd is home to the weekly Friday Night Jamboree at the historic Floyd Country Store.  Bluegrass and Old-Time players from nine to ninety spill out of the store and onto the sidewalks of this small and funky mountain town.

A walk through this one stop light, two-block town leads to a surprising number of galleries, coffee shops and the Harvest Moon, a longtime thriving health food co-op surrounded by beautiful rural country side. Antique shops, music stores, great restaurants and a large number of art galleries are all located in Floyd's small downtown area.   Although you could easily walk through town in about five minutes, you are more than likely to wander and stroll,  marvelling at all the exciting storefronts, eateries and shops that comprise Downtown Floyd.  Visit during summer months and be a part of the FloydFest scene, a premier music and arts festival that showcases well known performers as well as world and regional artists, another music scene that has put Floyd on the map for in-the-know Festival and music lovers.  Check out www.floydfest.com for more information on the not to be missed FloydFest experience.
