Tomorrow kicks off a weekend full of music and dance celebrating the re-opening of County Sales at its new location!
We hope you can join us for some of the festivities that will be taking place from Thursday until Sunday in downtown Floyd, Virginia. With concerts at The Floyd Country Store and Community Market Pavilion, artist meet & greets, workshops, dances and sales on all County Sales merchandise, it will be an event you won't want to miss! Many of the events of the weekend are free, a few are admission at the door, and the Larry Sparks and Handmade Music School workshops are ticketed events. See below for details.
