Welcome to GrassRoots Gazette - the online publication catering to the community built around our family of festivals: Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, and Virginia Keys GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance.

GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance is a mission-based organization that hosts 4 music/dance festivals a year...during all 4 seasons...in 3 different states spanning the east coast. No matter the season or reason, we have a festival worth traveling to.

From the Finger Lakes Region of New York to North Carolina's Piedmont, and on down to the beaches of Southern Florida - our festivals foster community through the magic of music, art, dance, education, wellness, and sustainability.
