The Epic Outdoor Food Fest In West Virginia You Simply Cannot Miss

Italian culture has a long history in West Virginia. Many of the state’s earliest settlers came over from Italy to work in the coal mines. Many generations later, their ancestors are still keeping the culture and traditions alive. One of the best places to celebrate this rich history is at the Upper Ohio Valley Italian Heritage Festival in Wheeling, WV.

This year’s festival will take place July 21-23, 2017. Find out more information on the festival’s website or Facebook page.
