About the Prepper Festival


The Prepper Festival is sponsored by the Craig County Business Association and is held on Downtown Main Street in New Castle, Virginia.  Click here for the location on Google Maps.

Past Prepper Festivals have had as many as 4000-5000 attendees and received rave reviews.

This year we expect an even bigger turnout and the event will include a wide array of preparedness, homesteading and survivalist-related vendors, local artisans, skill-building workshops, product demos, and even a Top Chef-style Prepper’s Cook-Off!

Additionally, live music will be provided throughout the day and a raffle with a large grand prize will be held, as well as door prize giveaways throughout the day. This event is sure to be fun and very informative for all who attend!


Feedback from past Prepper Festivals

We had a great time at the festival yesterday!! We came from Ohio and spent 3 days in the New Castle area. I still can’t get over the friendliness of the people (every person that passed us in the car waved) and those incredible mountain views!! Such a beautiful place!!
