Welcome to Rocky Mount Virginia!
Court Day...making music and memories.
June 10, 2017
Downtown Rocky Mount, VA
3:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Court Days was a long standing cultural event in Franklin County. It was the day the traveling circuit court judge came to town. It is remembered as a day of meeting friends, making music, trading goods, and "taking care of business". Court Days 2017 is the 3rd annual event featuring local and regional bands playing traditional music, family friendly games/activities, multiple food and craft vendors at The Farmers Market.
The Harvester will host Rex Stephenson and Company at 3:00 PM who will treat us to a play based on the Ingles family saga when Ms. Ingles was captured by Indians, escaped, and returned to her home. Following the play, The Richards family will present storytelling of Endicott families who lived during the height of the moonshine activities.
A headliner live band will perform at 7:00 PM from a stage in the middle of Franklin Street, near The Farmers Market. Admission to ALL activities and bands is FREE.
Court Days...making music and memories is brought to us by Fidelity Bank, The Town of Rocky Mount, Franklin County Office of Economic Development, and The Harvester.
Many thanks to Fidelity Bank, our Diamond Sponsor for 2017.
