These 11 Small Town Festivals In West Virginia Will Reconnect You With Your Roots

Our familial roots are what tethers us to our past. It is not only the ancestors we left behind, but the region in which we live. Family and land are intrinsically tied, and it is in that link that people of a certain area gather together to celebrate where they came from. These 11 festivals are emblematic of that regional connection.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
