Abingdon Festival Named Top 200 Festival In Country.
An Abingdon Festival and a major contributor to the livelihood of participating vendors and the antiques dealers has been voted as a Sunshine Artist 200 Best show of the last decade. The award focuses solely on artist show revenue because that’s the most objective indicator of a show’s future success. Typically Artists and Craftspeople are asked to vote each spring for the 200 best shows list. Due to COVID19, the organization decided to tabulate the best shows of the last decade. Out of all the shows and festivals in the entire country, the Virginia Highlands Festival was voted number 97.
