The Blue Ridge Music Center celebrates the music and musicians of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Each spring, summer, and fall, we welcome thousands of visitors to enjoy some of the region’s finest traditional music, including bluegrass, old-time, folk, Americana, country blues, and gospel. Guests are invited to delight in performances, exhibits, jams, and take a walk on our hiking trails. Located near Galax, Virginia, at milepost 213 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Visitor Center and Museum are open May through October. Admission to the Visitor Center and Museum is free. The grounds are home to an outdoor amphitheater and an indoor interpretive center.

Our summer “Roots of American Music” concert series is held in our spacious outdoor amphitheater with concerts presented on most Saturday evenings, Memorial Day through Labor Day. We welcome you to come visit with us and for you to sit a spell and hear the music that has shaped our nation.
