Rooster Walk has been named one of the Top 5 festivals in the state by the Richmond-Times Dispatch and listed as one of the Best Family Friendly Festivals by Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. It also was voted the region’s Most Creative Charitable Event by readers of Virginia Living Magazine for three consecutive years. The festival was created in memory of late Martinsville natives Edwin “The Rooster” Penn and Walker Shank, who graduated from Martinsville High School in 2000.

A portion of proceeds from the festival will be donated to local and regional charities, including Rooster Walk’s own Penn-Shank Memorial Endowment Scholarship Fund for students at Martinsville High School, and the Rooster Walk Music Instrument Program for public band programs in the local city and county school systems.

The festival is produced by Rooster Walk Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to promoting music, arts and education in its home of Martinsville-Henry County. Since 2009, Rooster Walk Inc. has donated more than $320,000 to local and regional charities.

Many ticket types have sold out or are in low inventory, but Rooster Walk 14 admission tickets do remain and can be purchased at, which also features all the information needed to plan for an amazing experience.
