Ridgetop Music Festival
Celebrate Appalachian music and storytelling at the Vinton County Airport every August.
In Vinton County, mid August can mean only one thing — it is Ridgetop Music Fest time! That's right, and this August is no exception. The annual family-friendly event features local and regional musicians, storytelling, crafts, delicious food, split-the-pot, and airplane rides. The jolly man in the red suit even makes an appearance. That's right, Santa stops by for a while to give candy to all the good little boys and girls.
The event spotlights traditional and bluegrass music and even offers "Five Minutes of Fame" segments for individuals who want to stand up and sing a song. Airplane rides are offered for a fee, and there will be a classic car cruise-in this year as well. For the youngsters, there will be face painting.
Plenty of food is available. Or bring a picnic if you like.
Admission is free, but a parking donation is requested. For more information about the festival, call 740-596-9811. See our Calendar of Events for this year's date and time.
