The 37th Annual Steppin' Out® festival will be held in Downtown Blacksburg on Friday, August 4, 2017 (10 am - 11 pm) and Saturday, August 5, 2017 (10 am - 10 pm).

Steppin' Out® features over 200 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.

Three stages of live performance make Steppin' Out one of this region's premiere arts events.

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 Avenue.

Additionally, as part of the festival, the annual Draper Mile race will be held on Friday, August 4, 2017 with races starting at 6:25 pm. For more information, visit: http://runaboutsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Draper-Form-2017.pdf.
