Once a town built on furniture manufacturing, Galax’s economy has begun to turn to tourism in recent years.

Galax has hosted the annual Old Fiddler’s Convention, an old-time and bluegrass music festival, since 1934. When visitors don’t come for the arts and culture, they come for the natural environment.
