Floyd County Trail
It’s Organic! It’s Eclectic! It’s Fun and Funky! It is definitely Floyd! Truly the largest artisan community in Southwest Virginia, the Floyd Artisan Trail brings you face to face with an eclectic collection of talented artisans who have their feet firmly planted into a community that nurtures creative and inspirational minds. Floyd County’s friendly artisan community opens their doors with special events, festivals and remarkable galleries. Floyd’s enchanting downtown is bursting with specialty shops, and restaurants with a varied fare from organic, and vegetarian to platefuls of simple home cooking. Locals provide fresh homemade bread, jams, jellies, desserts and pastries to tantalize visitors with a taste of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Visitors are invited to tastings at the local wineries, working farms, gardens, music under the stars and mountain views of the valleys below. Take your time along The Blue Ridge Parkway to see extraordinary overlooks, wild flowers, rich mountain culture and prevalent wildlife. Chief among downtown Floyd’s fascination is the musical talent that gathers every Friday evening at the local general store and spills out into the main street and alleys for impromptu jams.
