Big Coal River Heritage Festival


Thanks to all who attended the 2015 Big Coal River Heritage Festival

2016 information comming soon


This year the Big Coal River Heritage Festival will take place on

Saturday September 26 2015



The Big Coal River Heritage Festival is a celebration of the history of the region. The vendors and exhibitors bring together many fine examples of local arts and crafts. The food vendors provide everyone with an opportunity to taste many of the local specialties everyone loves so much.

The citizens who created the Big Coal River Festival are proud of the success they have had in bringing new people to the region. In 2012 over 1,500 people attended the festival.

It’s all about growing the economy and helping everyone learn about the wonderful history of the communities located along the Big Coal River in Boone County.

The festival is sponsored by the Coal River Group of which the Big Coal River Branch is a section of this organization.  The members work with other volunteer members in the community year around to make the event successful. The event is supported by the Boone County Commission, the Boone County Parks and Recreation Commission, the Boone County Emergency Services, and the Boone County VFW Post 5578.

The fifth annual festival will be heavily promoted throughout the state of West Virginia and as in the past, the organization hopes to bring tourists to the event that will help to spread the word about the many recreational and educational assets to be found in the Big Coal River Valley.
