Audrey’s Downtown Restaurant
38 North Kanawha Street
Buckhannon, West Virginia 26201

Several years ago Lewis Anderson, at the time a county deputy, began the first bluegrass gathering at the county jail. From there over a period of a few years it moved around. From the jailhouse it moved to Lester Kendrick’s music store on Main Street, to an industrial building where Lowes now sits, to Lewis County, and now back in Buckhannon. This energetic, live performance is great fun!

French Creek, West Virginia 26218

The West Virginia State Wildlife Center will celebrate the 41st Annual Groundhog Day with our resident weather prognosticator, French Creek Freddie! Freddie will emerge from his den at 10:00 a.m.  According to legend, if he sees his shadow, we’ll have six more weeks of winter.  If Freddie doesn’t see his shadow, we’ll have an early spring!

We’ll start the ceremonies at 9:30 a.m. in the Amphitheater.  The band “Enny Corner” will perform a few songs including their original “French Creek Freddie” song.   After Freddie makes his prediction, we’ll have our Wood Chuckin’ contest with prizes for different age groups.  Our French Creek Freddie mascot will be on hand so bring your camera and get your picture taken with a 7’ 8” Top-Hat wearin’ Groundhog.

There is no charge for this event.  Visitors are invited to tour the rest of the facility. We’ll have hot chocolate and cookies in the Gift Shop after the festivities.

Helvetia
1 Main Street
Pickens, WV 26224

In Helvetia, a mountain town that’s home to a Swiss village, Fasnacht is celebrated as the pre-lenten burning of Old Man Winter. It occurs on the Saturday before Ash Wednesday and is likened to Mardi Gras. It has its roots in the Swiss Winterfest.

Saturday afternoon features food, beverages, and open mic music in the Star Band (Red) Hall, a buffet at the Hutte restaurant, and browsing in the local shops. Masks from previous Fasnachts are featured at the Fasnacht Mask Museum. At 8:30 p.m., a parade featuring large, often frightening, and quite artistic masks travels from the Red Hall to the Community Hall where the costumes are judged and the square dance begins. At midnight the efigy of Old Man Winter is cut down from the ceiling of the Community Hall, carried on the shoulders of the celebrants to the bonfire outside, and burned to signal the end of Winter.

The warming effect is not immediate and visitors should wear plenty of clothing so they can enjoy the outdoor activites.

A typical schedule is:
10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Helvetia Mask Museum and General Store are open in Kultur Haus Helvetia.
3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Open Mic, food, and beverages. Star Band (Red) Hall.
5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Buffet – Greetings – Hutte Restaurant.
8:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m. Lampion (candlelight) parade – Star Band Hall to Community Hall.
8:45 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Judging costumes – Prizes – Community Hall.
9:00 p.m. – 12:00 p.m. Masked Ball – Community Hall.
12:00 a.m. – 1:00 a.m. Burning Old man Winter – outside Community Hall.

Buckhannon, WV 26201

“Frontier Folk Nebraska believes in the continuing relevance of a classic‐era kind of alt‐rock that flirts with occasional messiness in order to let its organically electric sound come together without too much art‐think or conceptualism. Faith is put in the music’s energy as the right conduit to showcase interesting songwriting… Neither from Nebraska nor a folk group, Frontier Folk Nebraska is instead a Cincinnati band that sounds like the Replacements attacking power pop with their thrashing guitar‐and‐drum energy kept in check by their love for melody and appealing song structure.”
