The West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival will celebrate its 39th year on September 1, 2, & 3, 2017. The WVIHF has in the past been rated among the "Top 100 Events in North America" by the American Bus Association, a "Top 20 Event" by the Southeast Tourism Society and one of the "Top Four Italian Festivals in the Nation" by the National Sons of Italy.

Entertainment and Events for All Ages
The Festival offers a wide array of authentic Italian "street food", complete with pastries, that one can eat on-the-go so that watching the entertainers and visiting the vendor booths can be done with ease! There is entertainment for the bambini as well, with a specially designated children's area, with stage and entertainment for the kiddos, as well as a safe carnival midway, with rides and games.

Top-named entertainers can be found on the main stage during the Festival. Previous years, Festival goers have enjoyed such notables as Tony Danza, Kathy Mattea, Jo Dee Messina, Steve Augeri, Joey Dee and the Starliters, and Frankie Avalon - all free of charge to the public.
