Rooster Walk 6 is in the books, but folks are still buzzing! Check out some of the kind words we’ve received from the media over the past week:

Appalachian Jamwich: “Rooster Walk 6, May 22-25, 2014 Review”

“We left Rooster Walk feeling refreshed, happy, and serene. The people that we met revived us in heart and soul, and we watched a community as well as people from all places come together to enjoy the beautiful music. Which is, if we think about it, the whole point of music festivals all along. We are glad to join in on a Memorial Day tradition for so many, that means a lot more than just the headlining name on the lineup. It’s truly an event that remains surprisingly human. Until next year, cock-a-doodle-doo!” CLICK HERE.

Grateful Web: “Rooster Walk Festival 2014 | Review”

“Nice Spring weather. Check. Tucked away in the scenic foothills of Virginia. Check. Easily accessible. Check. Polite and accommodating staff and police. Check. Well laid out stages and concessions. Check. Lightning bugs and even the tail end of a meteor shower. Check. Festival go-er friendly priced tickets. Check. Wide variety of talented performers. Check. The Infamous Stringdusters. Check. Anders Osborne. Check. Real live Dancing Bears (Humans in costume but we’ll take it). Check. Horns and Funk. Check. Bluegrass. Check. Proudly sponsored by an American manufacturer that didn’t sell out its town or country by going overseas to squeeze some extra profits. CHECK.” … CLICK HERE.

Danville Register & Bee: “Five things you’ll find at Rooster Walk”

“Whether it’s preschoolers splashing in the creek that runs between the stages or middle schoolers playing corn hole in the VIP area, there’s at least one thing at Rooster Walk that appeals to literally everyone. And for those who enjoy running up a mountain, there’s even the Tuff Stutter 5K Trail Run, dubbed one of the toughest courses in the Southeast.” CLICK HERE.

Martinsville Bulletin: “Rooster Walk 6 hits high notes”

“Great music, beautiful weather, good vibes and the best turnout yet have marked Rooster Walk 6 as a roaring success in the eyes of attendees and organizers.” CLICK HERE.

Roanoke Times: “Looking back at Rooster Walk, Chantilly” 

“I can’t say I felt great about it, hearing the Pimps rock one of their staples, “Keep That Music Playin,’” as I walked uphill toward the parking lot. But I feel pretty great about that festival, and wish them luck as they move into their new spot in Henry County. It will be hard to top the Blue Mountain atmosphere, particularly with the creek, but this move gives Rooster Walk room to grow.” CLICK HERE.



From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to everyone who played a part in making Rooster Walk 6 happen! From the musicians to the fans, staff, volunteers and vendors, we couldn’t have done it without you! What an amazing, magical, wonderful weekend!

We will be posting more photos and festival reviews soon. Here’s a link to a nice article in Sunday’s Martinsville Bulletin. Thank you!!!
