The Mountain State Forest Festival is one of the largest and oldest festivals in West Virginia originating in 1930. The
The “granddaddy of all Appalachian ramp feeds,” Richwood’s “Feast of the Ramson,” will be held Saturday, April 21. The 2018 version is the 80th anniversary of the very first public ramp feed held in this, the “ramp capital of the world.” In addition to a traditional menu of ham, bacon, potatoes, brown beans, and cornbread, the pleasing aroma of sassafras tea will challenge the somewhat pungent, distinctive odor of the delicious piece de resistance of this meal. Ramps, a wild mountain herb known for “smelling bad,” grows abundantly in the woody areas surrounding Richwood. The odor remains on the breath of the partaker for many hours after indulging. To ramp lovers, this smell is equal to the finest perfume. In addition to the meal which will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cherry River Elementary School, a huge Arts and Crafts Show will begin at 10 a.m. and run through 4:00 p.m. in the heart of Richwood at the Richwood Fire Station, City Hall and Richwood Public Library. Special free entertainment will be performed in both locations throughout the day. Tickets for the express service line may be purchased in advance prior to April 20 through the Richwood Area Chamber of Commerce, 38 Edgewood Avenue, Richwood, WV 26261. Include appropriate payment and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Cost is $13.00 for adults and $6.00 for children. At the door cost is $15.00 and $7.00. For more information, visit www.richwoodchamberofcommerce.org, or phone 304-846-6790.

— The 19th annual Elizabethtown Festival is planned for Sept. 16 at the Moundsville Center, inside the walls of the former West Virginia Penitentiary. The festival celebrates the traditions and customs of the past with bread making, quilt displays, weaving, and many craft items for sale. In 1999, the Moundsville Economic Development Council (MEDC) sponsored the first Elizabethtown Festival celebrating the long-forgotten town Joseph Tomlinson, an Irish immigrant’s son, established in 1738 and named in honor of his wife, Elizabeth. Elizabethtown was the first settlement on the “Flats of Grave Creek” and the Tomlinson family built their dwelling near the site of the Moundsville Middle School. Elizabethtown merged with neighboring Moundsville to become one town in 1866 and on Feb. 23 of that year, the first city officials of the town were named with many family names still local to the area today. The Elizabethtown Festival, originally offered as an 1800s heritage festival, has grown to now include items from the past to the present. Demonstrations of historic trades, food and musical entertainment, along with a cookie and apple pie baking contest, “Anything BUT Chili Soup Contest” and historical memorabilia displays make this event perfect for the entire family. Admission is free! This year, organizers are collaborating with the Uptown Moundsville Activities Committee Fall Festival to hold a large one-day event with a car and motorcycle show. By joining together, the two groups will offer more unique shopping and demonstration opportunities, along with giving locals and travelers more reasons to visit the area. Time for the festival is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16. For information or to become a vendor, contact: email@example.com or 304-845-6200.
