The Mountain State Forest Festival In West Virginia Is One Of The Largest Lumberjack Festivals In The U.S.

Although West Virginia is most famously known historically for the industry of coal mining, forestry and logging have also played significant historical roles in the Mountain State economy. It’s appropriate, then, that one of the oldest and largest forest festivals in the nation takes place each fall right here in West Virginia: the Mountain State Forest Festival in Elkins.
