There will be a variety of food: Stuart’s smokehouse, smoked meats and BBQ, kettle corn, strawberry shortcake, strawberry ice cream (and other ice cream flavors), and of course real strawberries from local Sunset Berry Farm, winner of last year’s Sweetest Berry in West Virginia contest. There will be a cornhole competition starting at 10:30am and a dessert contest (please submit by 11am to the Methodist Church). Dessert entries will be auctioned at noon! Ross Hanna Studios will be hosting paint events in the Alderson Train Depot. There will be a raffle of gift cards to local shops and eateries valued over $100; raffle tickets will be available for purchase throughout the day. Yard sales will be occurring throughout the town and the Methodist Church will host its annual flea market. There will be lots of kids activities centered around the Visitors Center, including unicorn rides provided by the WV Renaissance Festival! There will also be a scavenger hunt they can participate in for a prize. Several local nonprofits will be sharing their work and hosting activities. There will also be a large variety of shopping including homemade art and products. Vendors will be spread from the Train Depot across the pedestrian bridge to the Visitors Center. Walk the town and explore!The Festival wants to thank our main partner sponsors Sunset Berry Farm and Rainelle Medical Center, whose generous support makes these activities possible. A special thanks to our gold sponsors, Stuart’s Smokehouse and Greenbrier River Campground, which round out the weekend with local food and recreation. And to our silver sponsor, the Greater Greenbrier Valley Community Foundation, which works hard to support and build community in the region.Here is a link to our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/166756880692210/Contact Mystik Miller
