Each summer the festival presents eight to 10 concerts, featuring the best artists in country, bluegrass, pop/rock, folk, Americana and classical music.
Coming to the Festival stage this summer are country singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris, '60s folk legend Arlo Guthrie, the Midtown Men (four original cast members from the Broadway classic "Jersey Boys") and more!

Concerts take place mid-July through Labor Day weekend at Shrine Mont, a beautiful retreat and conference center and historic landmark, located in beautiful Orkney Springs, Va. Situated at the foot of Great North Mountain, our outdoor venue provides a stunning backdrop for concerts, and its modest size allows for great views of the stage from both the pavilion and lawn seating areas.
Lawn seating requires that you bring your own chairs and/or blankets. Food, coolers and adult beverages are permitted on the lawn, and picnic dinners are encouraged!
Picnicking on the lawn with family and friends before each concert has been one of SVMF's longstanding traditions. Some patrons bring an elaborate food spread and adorn their picnic tables with fancy tablecloths and flowers. It's a great way to catch up with old friends or make new ones!
Don't want to drive home after the concert? Stay overnight at Shrine Mont and get discounts on concert tickets, lodging and meals with our Music Lovers Weekend Getaway Package. Enjoy our concerts in the evening and visit nearby attractions during the day, including local caverns, Civil War battlefields, vineyards, craft breweries and a nearby resort with a golf course and lake with a beach and boat rentals.
