Reunions Every Year at the Festival
Class reunions are hosted in Ansted in conjunction with the Hometown Mountain Heritage Festival each year. These reunions include students of the old Ansted High School, the not-so-old Ansted, High School, and Midland Trail High School.
Attendees of the reunions enjoy reconnecting with old friends and classmates while perusing the demonstrations and vendor booths at the Festival. It's a beautiful time of year to come back to West Virginia and home to Ansted.
Country Roads Festival
The Country Roads Festival is the oldest running event in Ansted and is held every year on the 3rd weekend in September. It is hosted by the local Lion's Club.
