The Mountain State Forest Festival has a long history celebrating the important role West Virginia’s natural resources play in our economic development. Rich in tradition, the festival also plays a significant role in our local and state economy and offers something for everyone to enjoy, such as, the carnival, parades, exhibits, arts and crafts, delicious food, and of course, the Royal Court and coronation of Queen Silvia. We hope you plan to attend this year's festivities!
The largest and oldest festival in the state of West Virginia is considered a major homecoming for those individuals who previously lived in the Elkins area. It's also a time when first time visitors, young and old alike, come to the area to participate in the many festival events and activities.
Around this time of year, the West Virginia fall foliage has started to change and is at or near peak so there will be "leaf peepers" in the Elkins area, too. Over the course of the week, this small city grows from just under 10,000 individuals to well over 100,000 people.
With all of this in mind, it is highly recommended that those individuals who wish to visit the City of Elkins, during the Mountain State Forest Festival, make their lodging reservations, ASAP. Several of the local and area hotels, motels, Cabins, Cottages and Bed and Breakfast's will begin booking accommodations for various individuals one year in advance. So, please make your reservations right away.
The 76th Mountain State Forest Festival will be celebrated September 29 - October 7, 2012. This year's celebration will mark a significant milestone in the history of the festival association. Plans will begin soon with the hope of introducing a couple of new events or sights, the possibility or rebirth of events gone by, and the promise to continue our traditional festival and natural resource events.
