RIDE Solutions and Rooster Walk are working together to make it easier and rewarding to carpool or take the shuttle to Rooster Walk! Save money on gas and parking, reduce your environmental impact, and…did we mention, have a shot at winning TWO tickets to next year’s Rooster Walk event?
That’s right, if you carpool or use the Martinsville/Danville shuttle at least once – and log the trip in the RIDE Solutions app – to get to Rooster Walk this year, you’ll be entered to win two tickets to next year’s Rooster Walk event!
Rooster Walk Inc. invites you to Rooster Walk 13 from Thursday, May 25 – Sunday, May 28 to enjoy great live music from six stages with great time outdoors! Join in the Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival that pays tribute to two close friends – Edwin “the Rooster” Penn and Walker Shank, who both departed this world while in their 20s; your admission fee helps fund the “Penn-Shank Memorial Scholarship Fund” for exceptional Martinsville High School seniors.
The four-day event will feature many bands such as Sneezy, The Lil Smokies, The Marshall Tucker Band, Christina Vane, Sol Driven Train, Sanctum Sully, Rob Cheatham & Company, Kelsey Waldon, and many others!
This year’s Rooster Walk tickets are available at https://roosterwalk.com/ for up to four days for live music and other events such as a Kids’ Coop, Teen Scene, healing arts, and more!

Logistics and Giveaways
When you log at least one carpool trip or a trip on the Rooster Walk shuttle from Martinsville or Danville into the RIDE Solutions app rather than driving alone, you’ll be automatically entered to win two tickets to next year’s (2024) Rooster Walk event!
The section below entitled “Signing up and Logging Trips” provides step-by-step instructions to properly log your trip, or, if you’re not yet a RIDE Solutions member, to sign up for free!
The section below, entitled “Signing up and Logging Trips,” will show you how to connect with one or more people to carpool with to Rooster Walk. Carpooling will not only save you money on your drive, but is great for the environment, and leaves the driving and parking to someone else.

This year, shuttles will operate between Pop’s Farm (the event venue) and the following locations in Danville and Martinsville:
