New Town Festival: Gospel Sing

June 3 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for our 3rd Annual Gospel Sing, part of our New Town Festival series, at the St. Luke & Odd Fellows Hall. The afternoon will be filled with singing, dancing, and fellowship as local groups and soloists perform their favorite current and old-time gospel favorites.

The event is free, though donations are encouraged. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Back by popular demand, Chef Richard Perry will offer a traditional fish fry.

Former residents of New Town – an African American neighborhood in Blacksburg during the time of segregation – will participate in a panel discussion to share what life was like living in New Town.
