What an incredible day it was at Heritage Day 2023! We want to express our sincere gratitude to each and every one of our visitors, volunteers, staff, vendors, food trucks, and sponsors who joined us in celebrating our rich heritage and vibrant community.

From the bustling streets of downtown Christiansburg, VA to the serene Museum Gardens, the atmosphere was filled with joy and camaraderie as families, friends, and neighbors came together to enjoy a day of art, history, and fun.

A special shoutout to the Kiwanis Club of Christiansburg VA for managing the delightful beer garden and to the incredible performers who graced the Downtown Christiansburg stage, including Amelia Empson, Virginia Hollow, Pathway, PanJammers Steel Drum Orchestra, and Appalachian Space Train – you kept us entertained throughout the day!

The mouthwatering offerings from food trucks like Scoops Arcade and Community Pizza, as well as Bubba’s Barn’s delicious paninis, were simply a treat for the taste buds. And let’s not forget the excitement of the silent auction within the museum itself, offering a treasure trove of unique experiences and local artwork! 

None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our local business sponsors – American National Bank & Trust, Gates Flowers & Gifts III, CMG Leasing, Carter Bank & Trust, McCoy Funeral Home, Balzer and Associates, Inc., Foresight Design Services, Town and Country Veterinary Clinic, SERVPRO of Montgomery & Pulaski Counties, Summit Community Bank, Rice Realty and Landsales, Glenn Cochran – State Farm Insurance Agent, Corning Incorporated, The Tenacious Telecommunicator, and The Quilting Party. Your commitment to our community shines brightly!

Once again, thank you for being a part of Heritage Day 2023. Your presence and enthusiasm added an extra layer of magic to the day, and we can’t wait to see you again at our future events during our 40th year as a museum. Here’s to preserving our heritage and creating beautiful memories together!
