Do you live in Loudoun County? Then, we hope you'll stop by Mod Pizza in Purcellville on Thursday, November 7, and tell them that the Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival sent you. When you purchase your meal, mention the festival and Mod Pizza will donate 20% of your meal's price to our festival.
If you see this before November 4, please RSVP to guarantee that our fundraiser gets off the ground.
We're a group of volunteers who care about the trails and trees around our town of Round Hill, Virginia. We will put on a big party in June to celebrate the Appalachian Trail—and to welcome thru-hikers, day hikers and everyone else who enjoys the Great Outdoors to town.
We want to thank sponsors who have already stepped up to support the 2020 Round Hill Appalachian Trail Festival. Much gratitude goes to the County of Loudoun and the Town of Round Hill for supporting our work. Special thanks goes to one of our earliest supporters, who is donating much-needed cash again this year: Meadows Farm Nurseries and Landscaping. Eternal thanks go out to our generous host: B Chord Brewing here in Round Hill. We also appreciate new sponsors for next year, who are providing goods and services that we'll auction and raffle off to support the festival: Kathi Hottinger, Darn Tough Vermont, GutHook Guides and HydraPak. And, thanks to EcoProducts, food at our festival will be served on compostable plates.
Now, the "please" comes in: Please consider adding your name/company/organization to our list of sponsors. No one makes money on this free festival. 100% of what you give pays for our festival and supports our stewardship, education and hiking projects. We're moving to a two-day format this year, so that we can have one day of celebration and education and a second day of action. Go on a hike. Learn about native plants. See how to pack your pack.
We need cash to pay for tents and tables, shuttle service, hikers' meals—and so much more. Please contact us, if you want to learn more about sponsoring the festival. (Round Hill AT, the festival organization, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit!)
The Appalachian Trail is maintained by volunteers. You could be one of them.
Join the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club Cadillac Crew (CC) as they continue a major relocation of the A.T. at Loudoun Heights, October 26-27. The CC will be building new tread and making gravel. There will also be trail maintenance going on at Blackburn Trail Center the same weekend.
Newcomers, families, and well behaved dogs are welcome to join in for one or both days. Bring work gloves, lunch and plenty of water. Tools will be provided.
If you're from out of town, you may be able to stay at the Blackburn Trail Center. CC will host potluck meals for Saturday evening and Sunday breakfast. For details on this project, to sign up or get more information about the Cadillac Crew, please contact Ellen or Dan Feer.
You can also sign up through Round Hill Outdoors.
