Recover Fest 2022 will be held at the Jackson River Sports Complex Sept. 17, 2022 – Virginian Review

Covington, Va. (VR) – Recover Virginia, a newly formed and volunteer-led nonprofit organization, is excited to host its second annual Recover Fest event. Recover Fest 2022 will be held on Saturday, September 17th, at the Jackson River Sports Complex (at River Rock Amphitheater) located at 870 W Edgemont Dr, Covington, Virginia, from 12:00-9:30 p.m. Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the concession stand. Tickets are $10 each and free for kids 10 and under.

Our goal is to continue to promote the importance of treatment in changing lives while honoring lives lost. We do this by raising funds to provide support for Virginia’s communities suffering the most from meth and opiate substance use disorder (SUD) by funding programs and organizations that provide harm prevention and recovery services related to SUD in those areas. This year, we are excited to be supporting three organizations who provide these needs: Nelson Community Wellness Alliance in Nelson County, Rockbridge Recovery in Rockbridge County, and Compass for Life in Alleghany County.

“Recovery is Possible” is this year’s theme. This family-friendly event will present live music by local musicians with an array of genres including modern rock, gospel, alternative, and folk to appeal to all ages. The musical performances throughout the day include Shagwüf, Crimson Reign, Stay True, Fashionably Late, Multiple Intelligence Band, Ross & Claire, Theocles and Miss Spitfire. There will also be speakers, prayers, a tie dye station, games, Recover Fest 2022 t-shirts available for purchase (both tie-dyed and plain), vendors, henna tattoos, face painting, an art station, a raffle with items like gift cards from local businesses (Bartley’s Meat Market, Cucci’s Pizzeria, and more), and information tables presented by various sponsors and community partners. For those outside of the Covington area, we are also raffling off a $50 Wal-Mart gift card online up until the day of the event: For questions about the event or how to become a donor, vendor, or volunteer, contact
