A hub for arts, history, culture and technology, Downtown Blacksburg is a place where “Buy. Eat. Live. Local” is more than a slogan; it’s a way of life. From the bustling Farmers Market, open Wednesdays and Saturdays year-round, to the historic Lyric Theatre, Downtown Blacksburg is a place where locals, students, and visitors mingle, shop, and dine. With a variety of restaurants, and plenty of outdoor café-style seating there’s something to satisfy every taste bud.
Virginia Tech is connected to downtown so it is walkable from the main campus. Within the original 16 blocks of the incorporated town there are numerous art galleries and museums, it’s easy to turn a stroll through downtown into an art and history walk. Go to Town and step into the culture of Blacksburg!
