Elizabethtown Festival


Established by the Moundsville Economic Development Council (MEDC), this heritage festival takes place in Moundsville, WV, where from 1832 until 1866 the area was called Elizabethtown, named to honor Elizabeth, the wife of city founder Joseph Tomlinson.

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.
