Join us for a weekend of music, camping, and canoeing on the majestic New River!
Half Acre Promotions is a local cooperative booking partnership focused on showcasing and preserving the Appalachian music heritage of Southwestern Virginia. We have hosted several successful music events, including three seasons of bluegrass and old time music at the Newport Jamboree.
Working closely with the Town of Pearisburg and Giles County Tourism on the convention, we anticipate a positive weekend focused of family entertainment with music, canoeing, and primitive camping. The beautiful 30 acre Whitt-Riverbend Park on the New River will be transformed into a community event with bluegrass and old time competitions, activities for kids, and fun on the river for all ages.
Canoe tours, both short jaunts for the inexperienced and long tours for river veterans, will be available from our friends at Tangent Outfitters.
Musicians! We will be offering $3000 in cash prize money, complete with all the traditional old time and bluegrass categories AND we will also offer one non-traditional band category. Youth competitions and dance contests will also be available at the convention.
Registration is open 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Friday and 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM Saturday. And if you compete, you will be reimbursed your entry fee!
