Have you booked your Bridge Day weekend? If not, better hurry!
Accommodations around the festival— from campsites to luxury cabins— tend to fill up for the weekend, and it can be hard to find an open spot if you wait!
There are plenty of reasons to stay and explore all weekend long:
- Taste of Bridge Day the evening before the festival
- Nearby car show throughout the day
- Active Southern WV’s scavenger hunt
- Chili and Cornbread Cook-Off in Fayetteville after Bridge Day
- Bridge Jam concert, featuring some of bluegrass’s most legendary artists
- Film about the building of the bridge at the Historic Fayette Theater
- Rafting on both the world-famous Gauley River and family-friendly New River all weekend (Final day of Gauley season!)
Not to mention all there is to explore everyday! Quaint downtown Fayetteville (named “America’s Coolest Small Town), and the vast New River Gorge National Park— the outdoor adventure central of the entire east coast.
