Community Art Series: Blacksburg Southern Mountain Square Dance

The Blacksburg Southern Mountain Square Dance is one of the most unique and longest-running dances in the New River Valley and features some of the finest old-time string bands and square dance callers in Southwest Virginia.

Dances are usually held on the first Saturday of the month from February through May and October through December.

The Community Art Series is a joint project of the Blacksburg Partnership Collaborative for the Arts and the Town of Blacksburg. The series highlights the many creative talents of artists who live, work, or perform in and around Blacksburg, Virginia. Many of these artists are members of ‘Round the Mountain, Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Network and have studio stops along the Montgomery County Artisan Trail.
