Beats 4 Beets Sign-up
Musicians can sign up for Beets 4 Beats to play at the Blacksburg Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays! We’ve added additional time slots this year, so you may sign up for three spots, and in the “Comments section” please indicate the genre of music you’ll be playing.
As the season moves forward, there may be additional opportunities to play, if you’re interested. Also, please share this link with your musician friends! We are always looking for talented musicians like yourselves, who play music that compliments the market.
