October 2021 Events

Mountain State Forest Festival

Oct 2, 2021 12:00 AM to Oct 10, 2021 12:00 AM

The Mountain State Forest Festival is one of the largest and oldest festivals in West Virginia, continuing to promote the beauty and splendor of our mountains and valleys in all their autumn glory and promoting prudent development, conservation and culture of our abundant natural resources for the future.


The festival affords us the opportunity to share with our community and state the important role West Virginia’s natural resources play in our economic development. Rich in tradition, the Festival also plays a major role in our local and state economy and offers something for everyone to enjoy, such as, headline concerts and music shows, lumberjack competition, forestry & wood exhibits, juried art show, photography exhibit, quilt show, arts and crafts, amusement rides, (3) parades and the Royal Coronation of Queen Silvia.


Randolph County and the City of Elkins open their streets to accommodate 75,000+ visitors each year, with an opportunity for exploring our surrounding counties.

April 2022 Events

The Twelth Annual Ramps and Rail Festival

Apr 23, 2022 10:00 AM to Apr 23, 2022 05:00 PM

Ramps and Rail Festival

Update: Given the guidance of the CDC, local and state officials, all events over 10 people are to be postponed or cancelled for at least 8 weeks and this means the cancellation of the 2020 Ramps and Rail Festival.

The Twelfth Annual Ramps and Rail Festival will be held on April 24, 2021. The festival continues to grow each year and the Depot hopes everyone will come out again this year! People can try out different ramp-themed foods and listen to live music, enjoy the craft vendors, and vote for their favorite vendors.

Each year the festivities start at 10am and continue until 5pm. Food vendors concocted some delicious ramp-themed foods, like ramp burgers, ramperoni rolls, ramp chili and ramp risotto with shrimp. There will be about fifty different food and craft booths at the festival. The Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad offers train rides to those who want to take one of the first rides of the year.
