Rooster Walk: Reinventing a Region

What began as a gathering of family and friends to honor two young lives lost with fellowship and music, has evolved into one of Martinsville’s signature events.

Now in its eighth year, Rooster Walk brings together more than 4,000 people of all ages for a four-day festival of music and arts. In fact, this annual Memorial Day weekend event has become such a hit that it outgrew its original location at the Blue Mountain Festival Grounds and in 2015 moved locations to Pop’s Farm, 151 acres that sit near the Smith River.
