The Floyd Country Store is renowned as a place to experience authentic Appalachian music, dance, good food and local crafts right in downtown Floyd.
Since the Floyd Country Store opened for business in 1910 it has been at the heart of the Floyd Community. These days it attracts locals and visitors alike to enjoy authentic Appalachian music and dancing every weekend, wonderful local food at the deli/food counter, and a variety of useful and quirky products, including casual country clothing, musical instruments, recorded music, books, toys and gifts.
The store is one of the major venues along the Crooked Road Trail, South West Virginia's Heritage Music Trail, and takes the responsibility of nurturing and showcasing the traditional music of the region seriously.
The Friday Night Jamboree attracts visitors from all over the world to experience the joy of the the Appalachian traditions. Tickets to this event are $8 at the door ($5 for children ages 7-12, and kids under 7 are free) and it is often standing room only. In addition to the Jamboree, the Store hosts musical events all weekend, including concerts, dances, jams and workshops. From September through May, you can catch the Floyd Radio Show, a live broadcast variety show including musical guests, skits, stories, jingles and more.
The passing on of traditional music and dancing is an important mission of the store, which is how our affiliated non-profit Handmade Music School was formed. The school offers private music lessons, group workshops, a spring music camp and special events.
