The Little Fest That Could…

After much consideration, we at Smithfield Music’s Aiken & Friends Fest have decided to retire the Fest in Smithfield, Virginia. At this point, we are not saying it will be permanently retired but definitely for 2018.

We are proud of how a three-year commitment between Mike & Amy Aiken, Smithfield Music, and Smithfield Tourism turned into a twelve-year run. Looking back we are also proud of how this homegrown fest stayed true to its mission of bringing great national, regional and local songwriters and their original music to Smithfield.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, and vendors who supported us through the years. Most of all we would like to thank all of you who came to the fest year after year, bought tickets, made donations and believed in what this music fest was about.

So from the bottom of our hearts to the tips of our hats, thank you all for helping to make the Smithfield Music’s Aiken & Friends Fest the success it has been.
