Festival of the Rivers

​Held on Labor Day Weekend, Festival of the Rivers is a music festival featuring Grassroots Appalachian music in celebration of our rivers and railroad culture.  Blues, Roots and Traditional musicians showcase the influence Appalachian music has had on the world. This free festival is located in Hinton, Summers County, West Virginia at the confluence of the Greenbrier, Bluestone, and New rivers. As the "Gateway Community" for the New River Gorge National River, the community and festival are near both the National Park Service's New River Gorge Visitors Center on Interstate 64 and the breathtaking beauty of Sandstone Falls.

Running from 10am-9pm, the one-day event is held at the newly restored Freight Depot, located at 509  Commercial Street.

"Festival of the Rivers 2018" remains FREE to the public. Craft and food vendors will be on site, as well.
