The Down by Downtown Music Festival coincides with Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon race weekend in Roanoke, Virginia. The events are managed by the Roanoke Outside Foundation.

The music festival features three days of live music at multiple venues. You might find a hip-hop show, an acoustic, or a rising country or independent music star all in the same night.
