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. This year we added SedaliaFest (2017's SedaliaFest coincides with Perseid Meteor Shower) to our well-known event lineup including: The BBQ & Blues Festival, Artisan Fair, Bluegrass Music Festival, The Country Fair & Gathering, Chili Cook-off, and Christmas in Sedalia.
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.
Friends of Sedaliasupport the idea that the living arts & the art of living are fundamentally important in all lives. As we remain determined to promote, preserve, and enhance the arts and cultural heritage for everyone in our region, while also serving as an educational, instructional and creative resource for our local rural community, we invite you to become a friend and continue to support our efforts.
