Our committee members have held some in depth discussions and have decided to take this 10th Annual Heritage Day Festival in a new and exciting direction.
We are going to move the festival to Saturday September 12th and Saturday September 19th….yep…that’s right…it will become the AH Heritage Days Festival!! Not only are we expanding, but we are moving to a different time of the year!!!
On September 12th the C & O Railway Heritage Center will open up their facilities and will include specially planned activities for children and families. The downtown area will play host to a Progressive Food Festival with area restaurants serving up some special dishes, as well as foods to purchase for later enjoyment. In addition, there will be special events at the Alleghany Highlands Arts and Crafts Center. There will be a session on the history of cooking in their 1950’s style kitchen, and there will be several great exhibits as well. We hope other businesses will want to participate as well. Street entertainers will be on hand to provide additional fun for all ages.
