About Us

The 8th Annual Festy Experience in Nelson County, Virginia will be held October 5-8, 2017 (it’s Columbus Day weekend so don’t worry about work on Monday!). Throughout our seven-year history, we’ve worked hard to produce a festival experience that illustrates our core values: a love of Craft Food & Beer, Appreciation for the Outdoors, an-always Family-Friendly atmosphere, and bringing integrity musicians to our town... all rolled up into one big weekend of raging good times. If you have any questions please contact us info@theartistfarm.com or 434-220-4000.

Check out our offerings:

Family Friendly Fall Festy

The Festy Experience is the remedy to “I would love to go, but I’ve got the kids”. The Festy is the festival you come to WITH your kids. Unlike mainstream music festivals, the Experience of The Festy is not escapism but rather an opportunity to dig deeper into life with your family and your community. The Festy provides really amazing family-oriented activities as well as offerings for Family camping and day-tripping families.

The Infamous Stringdusters

The Festy community was seeded by the fans of The Infamous Stringdusters and the music has always been focused on showcasing some of the most talented artists that we can find...including well know names and obscure newcomers.

Craft Food & Beer

We’re taking the feedback from our fans provided last year and will be adding bigger, better food areas within various spots on site. Based on your feedback, there will be an amazing coffee shop and cafe on-site serving breakfast in the campgrounds. And as always, craft beer will be a very large aspect of your Festy Experience.


With acres of meadows and miles of trails, we are crafting a full weekend of outdoor activities that will include: Disc Golf, Ultimate Frisbee, Kickball, Soccer, Volleyball...plus Guided Nature Tours, Trail Runs, and Hosted Bike Rides. Of course we’ll still have an amazing YOGA program, plus the 22nd Annual Blue Ridge Burn (5k/10k)!
