This year, the magazine celebrates its 20th anniversary. That’s right, TWENTY YEARS of being a free, print publication providing authentic stories, reliable beta, and every once in awhile, a good laugh (or cry) to over 300,000 readers in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

We decided to throw ourselves a birthday party this weekend at Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia. To help us out, we asked our friends, The Infamous Stringdusters, to join in on the shenanigans. If we could boil the weekend bash into one sentence, it would go something along the lines of this: two nights of awesome bluegrass music, one full day of rippin’ turns, and priceless memories (mostly of our web developer Craig dancing front and center) that will last a lifetime.

Big thank you to our Duster friends, Erin Stolle and the Snowshoe crew, and to our amazing fans, without whom the magazine would not be possible.

Help us celebrate the magazine’s 20th birthday by using the hashtag #myblueridge and sharing with us your treasured mountaintop photos and outdoor adventures. In the caption (or in your Tweet), finish the sentence “My Blue Ridge is…” and your response could be featured in the mag!
