Culture

The central West Virginia region is steeped in long-standing tradition and culture. From the annual Folk Festival and hometown July fireworks display to the presentation of local art collections, Gilmer County offers a strong presentation of Appalachian life, in the past, present, and future.

Featuring the annual Folk Festival, Cedar Creek Fireworks Display, the largest art gallery in central WV, and the only full collection of Klaude Kemper's hand-carved birds on public display, Gilmer County's culture is deep rooted, and admirable.
