The Homecoming experience
a festival for folks who used to go to festivals...
The Homecoming Festival, is a homegrown, 3-day camping optional celebration of Virginia, filled with intimate musical & art filled experiences- complete with fireworks! Limited to 3,000 people, you can relax, sprawl out, and start a new Virginia tradition with friends year after year.
Honoring Virginia musicians and artisans, this year we spotlight on Glass Blowers, Blacksmiths, Potters & Painters! We will also celebrate members of the Virginia Craft Brewery Guild. What unifies this festival is the love for our beautiful state, and all of its colorful magic makers.
Come for the music, the art, or the beer- but get your tickets in advance, they WILL SELL OUT!
