The Annual Elizabethtown Festival will be held September 14 and 15, 2013. Join us for the festival that celebrates the traditions and customs of the past.
The goal of the festival is to instill in visitors a sense of the history of the area while providing entertainment and bringing economic development to the region and the State of West Virginia.
Objectives of the Festival:
Visitors to the Elizabethtown Festival will see crafts from the turn of the century such as basket making, quilting, sewing and weaving, scissor paper cuttings and blacksmith working skills. Not to mention all the good food that will be available!
Children can participate in checkers, clothesline art, a marble tournament, pie eating contest and other heritage games, such as wash day relay.
Educational exhibits such as old time working tools, a covered wagon, a pen of goats where you can see demonstrations of goat milk candy and soap making. Visitors can also view a picture story video presentation of early Moundsville.
Numerous artisans and demonstrators join the festival to present their works of art. There is also a Country Store where you can find a unique selection of items ranging from one-of-a-kind to groupings of bits and pieces where you can deal with the Country Store proprietor.
The event is the collaboration effort of not only exhibitors from surrounding states, but also the City of Moundsville, the Marshall County Commission, the WV Division of Culture and History and the WV Division of Tourism, as well as many local businesses and volunteers.
