Upcoming Special Events: Several times a month, we present world-class acoustic music artists for live shows from our stage. The building turns into an intimate concert venue with great sound and view of the stage, and is renowned for being a great place to catch a show! Ticket prices vary.

Jeff Little is an award-winning musician from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

Tickets for Friday Night Jamboree available at the door starting at 4:45pm, $8 admission ($5 kids under 12, under 6 free). Some reserved seating available in advance (purchased online).
NOTICE: For the early part of the fall, the Friday Night Jamboree may be held in the back yard of the Floyd Country Store from 6-8pm, with admission by suggested donation ($8).
