Synergy Organic Clothing loves FloydFest

floydfest giveaway

  For those of you who don't know, Synergy Organic Clothing originally got its start selling clothes at Grateful Dead shows in the 90’s and for that reason, concerts and festivals will always have a special place in our heart. To this day, we continue to sell our clothing at around 150 events each year. We often hear that many of our customers are initially introduced to our brand by seeing our clothing at festivals, which serves as a lovely reminder to continue on with our festival circuit year after year.   One of our favorite festivals is FloydFest in Floyd, VA from July 23rd-27th, 2014. Having been a vendor at this event for four years now we are excited more than ever for great times that are sure to be had. This year the theme is “Revolutionary” and the theme certainly runs deep. In an effort to encourage fest-goers to revolutionize their lives, FloydFest is “bringing eco-friendly practices to the summer festival scene.” As an eco-conscious and sustainable clothing brand we couldn't be more thrilled to join forces with FF.   Teaming with the likes of Klean Kanteen to provide free drinking water to all attendees, this “initiative has successfully eliminated waste from over 200,000 paper and plastic cups” and is a prime example of the efforts put in place to keep their festival location, a gorgeous 80-acre plateau directly off the Blue Ridge Parkway, in prime condition. This year they are also adding an array of all-age outdoor activities available to FF ticket-holders. Whether you want to take a bike tour through Blue Ridge or a paddling excursion down Little River, or partake in some disc golf, FloydFest has got you covered!   We've upped the ante in our participation in the event as well! For the first time, since sending the Synergy Organic Clothing festival crew to this event, the owners of our company and their kids are making the trek to experience for themselves all of the amazing things they've heard about FloydFest and the cool town it’s located in. What we're really excited about is the fashion show that Synergy Organic Clothing has donated clothing to be used and styled in the “Revolutionary” theme. Make sure this is on your list of activities!   To commence this exciting year with FloydFest we're giving you a chance to win two 5-day passes and an outfit to wear at the festival to experience all the epic things we've just told you about and more! To make this giveaway even sweeter, it's SO EASY to enter! All you have to do is head to our Facebook page and tag a friend in the comments section of this post! The giveaway runs from June 16-June 30, 2014 and the winner will be announced on July 3, 2014 to give you plenty of time to plan your trip! P.S. It wouldn't hurt to 'Like' the FloydFest Facebook page and the Synergy Organic Clothing Facebook page to stay updated on all the things you'll have to look forward to if you win!
