Upcoming Events

2018 Toboggan Festival
February 25, 2018
The event is scheduled from 12p-2p (or until all contests have concluded). As in years past, we will have a reindeer rodeo, toboggan limbo, race to the base, and other fun options. If you get cold, our warming hut will be open with a fire going to thaw those fingers and toes. Snacks, hot cocoa, and coffee will be available for purchase within the office. Don't already have a sled to bring? A limited number of tubes, toboggans, and saucers will be available for rent within the office on a first-come-first-served basis at a rate of $3-$5/hr depending upon your selection. This event is FREE and fun for the whole family and all age groups, so bundle up and come see us!

Past Events

Holiday Art in the Park
December 9, 2017
1:00p - 3:00p
Join us for our annual holiday celebration at Chestnut Ridge Park. This year we are painting 8x10" canvases to take home and share. We will have multiple holiday designs to choose from, or create your own. Elves will be on hand to assist with the painting, and Santa will drop by for pictures! The event will be held in the building behind the office, but if we experience warm weather like in 2015, we will move everything outside! Due to the cost of supplies and space, we are capping registration at 30 canvases. PLEASE use the link to sign up. If your plans change and you can no longer attend, please notify us in advance so that we may offer your slot(s) to other children. Thank you.

The West Virginia Hitchers
September 2, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
The original "Hitchers" was very guitar-centric with pedal steel and percussion layered on top. The new "WV Hitchers" is a more authentic Folk-Americana sound, relying on the powerful songwriting and smooth vocals of Maria that melds with the strength of the lead guitar position, now occupied by Chuck on his pedal steel. Dan and Creed fill out the mix with Dan's subtle and steady percussion as well as Creed's tastefully rich bass lines. Tickets $5, kids 6 and under get in free. The food vendor will be Red Beard BBQ.

Weary Space Wanderer
August 26, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
Weary Space Wanderer is spreading improvisational, Appalachian-jam over the made-from-scratch material of singer-songwriter Kevin Hamric. Taking the stories built on an acoustic guitar and shaping them into mind-bending trips of Americana and roots-rock exploration, Weary Space Wanderer is nothing short of an eclectic ride into what modern mountain music can be. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. The food vendor is Garcia's Latin Market.

Western Ave String Band
August 19, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
“Western Ave.” plays a huge variety of genres from Old time traditional Bluegrass, Fiddle tunes (some even jamming into the Grateful Dead) plus a large number of original tunes written and arranged specifically for our group. They focus on dynamic leads, three part harmonies (especially in the bluegrass numbers) and are seasoned veteran musicians. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. The food vendor is Bar-B-Qed Beast.

The Plate Scrapers
August 12, 2017
6:00p - 8:30p
As classic as cast iron, as space-age as a flying car -- The Plate Scrapers are serving up their own flavor of bluegrass by way of a winding wormhole through folk, jazz, and heavy metal dimensions. So grab yourself a thick slice of nostalgia, slap on a side of mind-bending originality, and top it off with some piping-hit pickin', and let this hungry bunch "take you out of this atmosphere." Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free. The food vendor is Garcia's Latin Market.
