Cheat River Festival 2016

Screen Shot 2016-03-24 at 1.03.32 PM

The annual Cheat River Festival is a celebration of new life, that which comes each Spring and the new life that can be found in the Cheat River watershed. Cheat Fest is Friends of the Cheat’s annual fundraiser which helps us advance our watershed projects and supports the organization’s administrative costs. Rain or shine, Cheat Fest is always a good time!

From 11:30am ’till 11:30pm on Saturday, May 7th, the festival grounds in Albright, West Virginia will once again transform into a haven for boaters, music lovers, and families. Bands from all over Appalachia will entertain crowds with live music all day, while Fest goers browse the Art Market, learn about other
non-profit organizations that share the FOC vision, bid on a great array of silent auction goods, buy fCF_DancingGirlsrom a variety of food and merchandise vendors, and above all, help support Friends of the Cheat.

Another reason to love Cheat Fest: kids under twelve are free! This year, kids of all ages will congregate at the ever-growing Kid’s Tent from noon ’till 5:00pm for a host of hands-on activities.
