Ferrum College is once again offering FloydFest 19~Voyage Home attendees comfortable lodging on campus through the Learn & Lodge Program during festival days, July 24–28, 2019. Room packages at $80 per night for a single room, or $135 per night for a double room, include breakfast and daily shuttle service to and from the FloydFest site. Visitors also have the opportunity to learn about the folk heritage of the Blue Ridge region and the Crooked Road Music Trail at the Blue Ridge Institute and Museum while staying on campus.
During the festival, festival-goers can stop by the College’s sponsor tent and the popular Ferrum College Workshop Porch Stage, which offers an intimate listening environment as well as opportunity to engage with musicians as they share songs, stories, and techniques in a hosted, workshop-style environment. They can also visit the Outdoor Adventure Tent to sign up for the Ferrum College 5K Trail Running Race to be held on Sunday, July 28 at 9:30 a.m. Top runners will receive prizes in several categories. The race incorporates parts of the FloydFest site and two laps on the Moonstomper Trail. In addition, there will be College-sponsored opportunities to learn fly-tying, fly-casting, and screen printing scheduled throughout the festival.
