Trail Days

Trail Days is an event held annually since 1986 in Damascus, Va in celebration of the Appalachian Trail.

Over the past 27 years, the event has grown to one that draws more than 20,000 people to the trail town of Damascus, which only has a population of 1,000.

Trail Days is four days of hiker talks, camping out, live music, food vendors, craft vendors, and chances to meet and shop from all the best manufacturers of outdoor equipment.

Whether you are a seasoned, novice, or aspiring hiker, Trail Days will be an excellent experience.

2013 Trail Days was held May 17-19 but not to worry. I have recapped my 2013 Trail Days experience for those of you that missed it in hopes of sharing some of the knowledge gained and to excite you about attending next year.

Additionally, several other locals along the AT have recently started their own Trail Days festivals that you may still be able to attend:

June 1, 2013: The First Nelson County “Trail Daze”

June 7-9, 2013: The 2nd Annual Troutville Trail Days
