West Virginia Has An Annual Roadkill Cook-Off And You Have To See It To Believe It

Road kill is pretty common in West Virginia due to the abundance of wildlife. Since 78 percent of our state is forested, this is no surprise to anyone. But this one festival in Marlinton takes road kill to a whole new level.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

The festival takes place in Marlinton every fall; check out its Facebook page for more information and to see when this year’s festival will be.
