Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival was recently awarded a $10,000 state grant that will be used toward marketing the 2016 event.
The group was one of 39 state tourism initiatives awarded grants from Virginia Tourism Corporation’s (VTC) Marketing Leverage program.
Piedmont Arts, Rives Theatre and Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corporation’s (EDC) Tourism Division partnered with Rooster Walk and donated a $20,000 local match for the grant.
More than 4,000 people attended the festival in 2015 at Pop’s Farm in Axton. This year’s eighth annual festival will be held May 26-29 and feature 45 bands.
