Due to the recent unprecedented heavy rains, the major storm that hit us Tuesday evening (which caused significant flooding of all our parking areas) and a weather forecast that calls for still more rain, we regretfully announce that we are having to cancel our 15th Annual Festival originally scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2011. We are fearful that the risk to people and their vehicles in the extreme mud is simply too high. Please help us spread the word that the event has been canceled. We deeply regret this announcement as we had added a number of new activities and expanded exhibits. All is not lost however, in addition to being open daily (except Sundays) for regular tours, please remember that we will still be having our Way Back Weekend Festivities on the first Saturday of each month throughout the remainder of 2011 and we will utilize the "extra" opportunities normally at Spring Festival and spread them throughout the remaining Way Back Weekends beginning with "Recycled Beauty" (Quilting, Sheep Shearing, Braided Rugs) on Saturday, June 4, 2011. Other Way Back Weekend opportunities will include: July 2 Youth Festival; August 6 Wood Festival; September 3 Appalachian Music Festival; October 1 Fall Harvest Festival; November 5 Hand Blown Glass; and December 3 Holiday Market. If you have any questions or need further information, please call the Heritage Farm office at 304-522-1244 or visit us on-line at heritagefarmmuseum.com
Thanks for understanding, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
