Steppin' Out, August 7-8, 2015
Steppin' Out features over 250 artists and crafts people from around the United States selling unique handcrafted items – jewelry, pottery, textiles, metal work, basketry, stained & fused glass, yard art, fine art, furniture, toys, artisan foods and so much more!
Downtown Blacksburg merchants also hold their much-awaited final clearance sidewalk sales during Steppin' Out. And those festival foods you love are provided by downtown restaurants.
Admission is free! Town of Blacksburg metered parking is all free and Blacksburg Transit provides free shuttles to get you there without the hassles. Bring your friends! Bring your family!
But please don't bring your pets. Steppin' Out gets crowded so leave your dog in the Canine Corral on the Henderson Lawn on College Ave. For the safety and comfort of our festival guests, Steppin' Out does not allow dogs (except for service dogs).
We're Virginia Green!
