Galax, a World of Opportunities

The City of Galax is within a 3-hour drive of every major metro area in Central North Carolina, only seven miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and eleven miles from I-77. It is a commercial hub for the twin counties of Carroll and Grayson, Virginia, which makes the city a perfect spot for both new development and redevelopment.

This city is home to several well known venues and events as well, including the Old Fiddler’s Convention, America’s longest running music festival, and The Rex Theater, a featured site on The Crooked Road, which is part of Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail. Residents and visitors can enjoy the downtown arts hub that is in the three buildings of the Chestnut Creek School of the Arts, or check out the Southern Terminus of the 57-mile New River Trail State Park.
