2018 SILVER AWARD WINNER FOR FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE
SEDALIAFEST Saturday, August 11, 2018 Our annual fundraiser Featuring... FIRECRACKER JAM MOUNTAIN RUN BAND Gates open at 6 pm $15 per person, children 12 & under free
The Art of Living comes to life at this year's SedaliaFest on August 11, 2018. We invite you to enjoy a summer evening under the pavilion or under the stars. Rain or shine, we'll be fine! Let's hope for a good clear night for our wide open sky view of the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. We'll have available for purchase (separate from admission price) DELICIOUS SMOKY BBQ plus all the sides, including a CORN ROAST! Cold beer and wine will be available as well as a variety other non-alcohol beverages. The Art of Living will be explored through our RE-ENERGIZED SOLAR ARRAY, our #sedaliagivesback initiative (we'll be presenting a donation to the Big Island Volunteer Fire Department), plus our endeavor to support the community by encouraging other non-profits like the Bedford Women's Club to join us at no cost in order to raise a little money to support their good work, and much more!
Sedalia Gives Back
As with all organizations built on a service-oriented foundation, The Sedalia Center has a responsibility to stay relevant and innovative in that service to most effectively enrich the lives of those folks living in our local community. And with that charge before us, The Sedalia Center is excited to announce the launching of Sedalia Gives Back: Local Community Enrichment Programs.
The Sedalia Center is home to some of the most anticipated annual food and music festivals in southwest Virginia, drawing loyal attendees year-after-year from the local communities of Big Island and Sedalia, as well as from the cities of Lynchburg, Amherst, Roanoke and Bedford.
Founded in a 1991 by a local beloved medical Doctor, Bill McCabe and his artist wife, Annis McCabe, The Sedalia Center has enjoyed its years operating as a non-profit, with its mission of inspiring all to explore the living arts and the art of living… and along the way discover the creativity and imagination in each of us. We are located in beautiful Bedford County, Virginia; conveniently situated between Roanoke, Lynchburg, Smith Mountain Lake and Lexington. Sheltered beneath the Blue Ridge Mountains, the campus spreads across 17 acres of sunny green lawns and wildflower meadows.
The Sedalia Center can accommodate a quaint meeting, large gathering, or corporate function. Whether you are planning a wedding beneath the Blue Ridge Mountains, a family reunion, or corporate event, The Sedalia Center has abundant space, large bathrooms, two commercial kitchens, a huge outdoor covered pavilion with a permanent large stage, indoor meeting space and many convenient options to serve your needs.
Our facility also features the beautiful Walk of Poems and Discovery Trail, along with a recreational ball field, riding arena and playground. Come visit The Sedalia Center and see why folks keep coming back.
