Celebrate the AT at the Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival on June 15
The Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival is a celebration of the AT, outdoor opportunities, and Round Hill’s new designation by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as an AT community.
The festival kicks off on June 15 at 11 a.m. in Round Hill, VA, with the official designation and continues all afternoon with live music, fun activities, food trucks, good beer, speakers, and equipment demos. It is a free family friendly, thru-hiker friendly event located at B-Chord Brewing Company.
Speaker topics include Backpacking Lite, Leave No Trace, The Secret Life of Insects, Day Hiking 101, Health and Wellness on Trail, and a thru-hiker panel.
There will be live music from Gina Furtado Project, Justin Trawick and the Common Good, and Short Hill Mountain Boys, along with Celtic and old-time jam sessions.
The Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival will offer thru-hikers shuttles to and from the trail, snacks, showers, supplies, phone charging, and a place to camp. They are also invited to join in on the panel.
This is a great opportunity for thru-hikers to connect with the local community and vice versa!
Partners of the festival include Potomac Appalachian Trail Club, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, Friends of the Blue Ridge, Piedmont Environmental Council, Blue Ridge Wildlife Center, Virginia Master Naturalists, Round Hill Arts Center, and the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department.
