The Virginia Highlands Festival (VHF) is a nationally recognized 10 day celebration of the cultural arts held in midsummer each year. It is the premier cultural arts event in the area. The event was begun in 1949 by a small group of volunteers including Robert Porterfield, founder of the Barter Theatre, as a means to showcase the region’s arts, to educate and entertain its citizens, and to attract tourists to the area during the hot summer months.
We are honored that so many outstanding area businesses and organizations are festival sponsors. They, along with the festival board and volunteers, welcome thousands of festival attendees to Abingdon each summer.
We would welcome your sponsorship along with these area businesses listed below. Please call (276) 623-5266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if your company or foundation would like to support Abingdon’s largest summer event.
