If lush floral displays are the downtown equivalent of a genuine smile, then the little West Virginia town of Buckhannon is famously in good health and a welcoming frame of mind.
“We are known around the region as the City of Flowers,” says mayor Robbie Skinner. “It’s absolutely beautiful. People come from all over to shop, eat, and enjoy our flowers—I get calls from cities around the state asking how we do it.”
This community of 5,500 is full of pleasant surprises. “When people come to Buckhannon, they’re always taken aback by how beautiful our downtown is, how alive it is, how much it has to offer,” says Skinner, a Buckhannon native and graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College in town. “Small-town America has not weathered the years very well—but Buckhannon has, and we’re very proud of that.” Find out what else is in Buckhannon, West Virginia by checking out our website! https://loom.ly/7av6X4A

🍓💕What a wonderful evening the 80th Strawberry Festival Coronation was at the beautiful WVWC Chapel last night! The West Virginia Strawberry Festival crew really did such an amazing job! The WV First Lady Cathy Justice was even in attendance to crown the Queen this year! We got a chance to meet and talk with her, and thank her for all she and The Governor do for the artists of our state. The Curator of the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History was there too, we always love seeing the marvelous Randall Reid-Smith! He and his staff are so incredibly supportive of Art in WV, and do so much for so many! Also big thanks to our friend, Robert Osborne from WVWC for helping us get situated. We saw some good friends, met some new ones, and enjoyed watching all the cute kids dressed up in their formal wear once again. We always love this event, this year was especially good!
West Virginia friends! Here's an updated look at the forecast for this weekend at the 80th West Virginia Strawberry Festival. It's going to be HOT! Temperatures will be reaching the upper 80s and low 90s by Friday and Saturday. There is the chance of showers and storms late Thursday night in Friday morning. Then conditions will be dry until pop-up showers and storms will be possible later in the day on Saturday.
The main concern weather-wise will be the heat and humidity! Make sure you are taking proper steps to keep yourself hydrated and cool when enjoying the festival activities. West Virginia Strawberry Festival
