Charleston, West Virginia, is packed with fun events and festivals all year long, but the people behind the 2016 FestivALL celebration don’t want you to have to choose — instead of deciding between multiple events in the same weekend, why not go to all of them at once? Starting this Memorial Day weekend, FestivALL brings together some of Charleston’s favorite events in one place, so you won’t have to pick a favorite.
The first event of the weekend, beginning on Friday, May 27th, will be Live on the Levee. Their first show of the 2016 season is slated to begin at 6:30pm that evening. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
The next day — Saturday the 28th — will be both an indoor and outdoor event known as the Taste-of-ALL. Taking place at Haddad Riverfront Park and 4Points by Sheraton, Taste-of-ALL is focused on giving festival-goers a taste of local and regional fare, all the while providing live entertainment and a make-and-take art area for the creative types. Beer and wine tastings will also be available.
Festiv-ALL will conclude Saturday evening on the Schoenbaum stage, where a number of both local and national musical artists will take the spotlight to perform. Like Live on the Levee, there will be food and drinks available.
Sunday will finish off the event lineup with West Virginia Public Broadcasting bringing the MOTH to Charleston, a radio program with an emphasis on the art of storytelling and the diversity of the human experience.
The 2016 FestivALL celebration on Memorial Day weekend is only a preview of further celebrations to come. The festival will return in mid-June from the 16th until the 27th to showcase live music, great food, plenty of drinks, and regional art and culture. Don’t miss it!
