Stockley Gardens Arts Festival!

This is the MacDaddy of all festivals! The BEST Arts Festival Norfolk Virginia has to offer! The event website says it all: Building community takes art. Music. Food. Laughter.

Outer Banks Bluegrass Island Festival

Carolyn will be in Manteo for the Outer Banks Bluegrass Island Festival September 23 – 26! The Outer Banks Island Festival. While the festival’s website may not give information regarding the curated group of artists and craftsmen (craftspersons), trust me when I tell you that they don’t let every gidget and gewgaw maker in area come in and set up a table and sell trinkets and junk. No siree, Bob. Artisans and Artists and Crafts beyond compare… You can get more than music at the Festival. But, speaking of music: Sam Bush. Steep Canyon Rangers. Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis .
