We've been fortunate to have this festival hosted by the generous folks of B Chord Brewery three times. Sadly, B Chord closed up for business, and we found ourselves a festival without festival grounds.
We're happy to announce that the Town of Hillsboro will become the festival's new host and partner. We'll continue to toast the Town of Round Hill's designation as an A.T. Community, as we welcome Hillsboro, our neighbor community, to this celebration of the Appalachian Trail and all the beautiful green spaces here in Western Loudoun County.
We hope you'll join us June 10, 2023, at Hillsboro's Gap Stage and Old Stone School for the rebranded Round Hill / Hillsboro Appalachian Trail Festival in The Gap. Once again, we'll have Americana tunes and trail talks, bites and brews (and wine) and activities for all ages.
Meet reps from local hiking and environmental groups including Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Potomac Appalachian Trail Club, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, Friends of the Blue Ridge Mountains...and many more. Come to camping/hiking demos, learn about native plants, try your hand at nature-inspired art—and you might just go home with one of our raffle prizes.
More announcements to come, but we hope you'll save the date now.
