Wayside Park is home to Patrick County’s biggest annual music event, the Wayside Bluegrass Festival. Taking place in the beautiful Stuart, VA, our park and event have been a family owned operation for nearly 50 years. Wayside Park is the perfect place to hang out with old friends and make plenty of new ones. The whole family will be itching to come back for another adventure.
The Wayside Bluegrass Festival promotes traditional, country, folk, gospel, and bluegrass music. Our annual event has on-site camping to ensure visitors can save time and rest safely after a night of fun. Every year we feature a great line-up that’s certain to create an enjoyable four days for everyone. We are proud to consistently bring outstanding live music and performers to our stunning venue.
Just about an hour from Winston Salem, NC, Roanoke, VA, Danville, VA, Galax, VA, and only 45 minutes from Mt. Airy, NC, Wayside Park is the perfect place for a day trip. You can plan to spend just a little time with us and still have a great day. We have the perfect space for hosting the annual bluegrass festival!
