Last Major Update:

We're in the process of updating events and are through all events that happened previously in September and October. November will be updated in its entirety soon.

All events showing current dates need to be verified to confirm that changes to the schedule were not made by the organizers after publication here, due to COVID-19, weather/natural disasters, or other reasons. We do not run these events, and would hate for anyone to go out of their way only to find the event had been canceled after releasing a date. Please click through to the event website to confirm!

    Hello, and good chilly September 1, 2015.

    I don’t see the Beckley, West Virginia listing of their Burlington United Methodist Church Pumpkin Harvest Festival. I see the Milton, WV Apple Harvest Festival.

    I am sure it will be held October 3rd and 4th this year, and it would increase participation if listed here. I have spoken to Sheila at the Beckley office.

    Thanking you for a wonderful page,
