About EventZone


EventZone is a 501(c)3 organization that was created in 2003 when various existing downtown Roanoke event organizers merged to become one. We have gone from hosting solely downtown events to becoming a truly regional Southwest Virginia community event organization.

We believe that EventZone's efforts to provide social, cultural, and economic impact to the Roanoke Valley make Roanoke and its surrounding counties a better place to live, work, and play...one memory at a time!

EventZone has administered and managed major events that have attracted over 90,000 people from both in and outside the Roanoke Valley.

  • We serve the region with engaging entertainment that provides and stimulates social and economic vitality for the region. 
  • Our varied events and festivals deliver sponsors the opportunities to market their products to a diverse public.
  • Our events directly contribute to the celebration of the community, blending diverse public in mutual enjoyment.
  • Our events provide opportunities for up-and-coming local talent.
  • We create uplifting moments and memorable experiences.
  • Our events draw people to communities at a reasonable price.
  • Our events have had a direct impact on the arts, uniting the artistic community, and showcasing the arts and entertainment.
  • We have experienced facilitators of events, including planning.
  • We are a non-profit organization, with tremendously dedicated volunteer support.

Scholarship for the Arts

Part of our mission is promoting and supporting the arts locally. One of the ways we do that is through our Scholarship for the Arts program. The program is in its 24th year, and has awarded over $136,000 to local students who are pursuing studies and careers in the arts.

Our Scholarship has been awarded for 2016. Stay tuned for more information on how to apply in 2017!
