The West Virginia Winter Music Festival is coming up fast! Scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24 and Saturday, Jan. 25, downtown Lewisburg will be the place to be with all sorts of bands rocking out around town each evening.
Participating locales including the Asylum, Hill and Holler, the Livery, Sweet Shoppe, Washington Street Pub, Wild Bean, and the Clingman Center at Montwell Park.
The cost is $20 per night, or a $30 weekend pass. Wristbands may be purchased at participating locations with cash only. According to local musician Jim Snyder, “It’s been said that the West Virginia Winter Festival is likely the largest grossing, the largest attended and largest local economic contributing, independent, all volunteer event of its kind in West Virginia!”
