This festival commemorates Richard Potter, the most noted former resident of the land the park now owns. Several of the best bands in bluegrass music perform, and there is a square dance, too. Concessions are available, and bring lawn chairs or a blanket. Check the website or call ahead for the times.

Directions: From I-77, take Exit 1 (in West Virginia) for US-52 N, and follow this for 2 miles, turning onto Rt. 460 West. Follow Rt. 460 West for almost 80 miles, and at Harmon Junction turn left onto Rt. 609. Follow this for 9 miles. This intersects with Hwy. 80. Turn left on Hwy. 80, and in 1/2 mile the park entrance is on the right.
