Mondo Roots Cultural Arts And Music Festival is coming! This year there are some pretty exciting things going on and I just cant wait to share some of them with you. Covering the first Mondo Roots festival was definitely a highlight from my last year, I was honored to be asked. Before I go any further, you have to know this event is FREE FREE FREE!


Empowering the community by celebrating diversity.

This second annual Mondo Roots Cultural Arts And Music Festival will of course be fun for the whole family. There will be activities such as a sidewalk chalk art contest, drum circles, yummy foods from all over the world, and 30 to 40 vendors will be on site; there will be something for everyone including your pets!

The music line-up is something you see coming out of a big city, only it’s right here in the heart of our small, but rapidly growing town.

Appaloosa Festival

My first Appaloosa Festival was INTENSE! I was fortunate to be able to assist with social media at this most recent Appaloosa Festival. The location is the picturesque Front Royal, Virginia, high atop the Appalachian Mountains.

I made it to my first Jorts in July event down at Deep River Brewing Company. Over the last year I feel like I’ve really gotten to know a lot of people here.
