Thursday Getaway: Floydfest 2015 is Here!

July 23 2015


At this point in the week, we suspect you're in the mood to get out and enjoy the world outside of your computer screen, but it's Thursday, and you can't–yet. Don't despair! We've got just the thing to make you smile, daydream or draw inspiration from for your weekend, which is just around the corner.

FloydFest is an independent, grassroots, multi-genre family-friendly outdoor music festival that takes place in the beautiful mountain town of Floyd, Virginia. Now in its thirteenth year, FloydFest welcomes over a hundred bands, along with nine uniquely different performance stages and a myriad of experiential offerings for the entire family. We're proud to partner with this event for so many reasons, but we're most full of pride for our ability to work together to reduce single-use waste. 

Several years ago, Klean Kanteen and FloydFest installed a commercial well on the event site, making it possible to provide free drinking water to all festival patrons. The immediate impact? We eliminated the waste of over 50,000 single-use plastic water bottles throughout that very weekend. We continue to partner with this epic event to reduce single-use waste by providing free mountain water to all guests, all weekend long. 

This year's FloydFest just kicked off, and we're excited to be a part of such an amazing event, yet again! Swing by and say hello to us, and enjoy a beautiful weekend in the mountains!
