Wayside Bluegrass Festival unveils “Virginia is for Bluegrass Lovers”


Wayside Park in Stuart, in conjunction with the Virginia Tourism Corporation, created “Virginia is for Bluegrass Lovers;” an official logo stemming from the classic “Virginia is for Lovers” brand.

Patty Hazelwood, co-owner- of the park, announced the new logo at the 19th Annual Wayside Bluegrass Festival.

Wayside Park created the trademarked logo not only in celebration of Patrick County’s rich bluegrass history but also to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the “Virginia is for Lovers” brand, known as “50 Days of Love” across the state.

“First a big thank you to Sandra Belcher for assisting me in this project. It was fantastic receiving the trade mark from VTC to highlight Patrick County and Wayside Park,” Hazelwood said.

Belcher is the director of the Patrick County Tourism Office.

“Our County is full of talented musicians, many of which have played at Wayside Park. It is such an honor to receive the Virginia is for Bluegrass Lovers logo to share with them and our entire county and surrounding areas. We want our county to thrive on tourism and being recognized by the Virginia Tourism Corporation is just special,” Hazelwood said.

The 20th Annual Wayside Bluegrass Festival will be held July 15 through 18, 2020 at Wayside Park in Stuart.
