Cheat Fest is the annual celebration hosted by Friends of the Cheat on the banks of the Cheat River. Many fest goers make a weekend out of it and stay in the adjacent campgrounds. Cheat Fest serves as FOC’s primary fundraiser, and supports our work throughout the year.
From 5:30pm ’till 10:00pm on Friday, May 5th, and 11:30am ’till 11:30pm on Saturday, May 6th, the festival grounds in Albright, West Virginia will once again transform into a haven for boaters, music lovers, and families. Bands from all over Appalachia will entertain crowds with live music, while Fest goers browse the Art Market, learn about other non-profit organizations that share the FOC vision, buy from a variety of food and merchandise vendors, and above all, help support Friends of the Cheat.
Another reason to love Cheat Fest: kids under twelve are free! Kids of all ages can congregate at the ever-growing Kid’s Tent from noon ’till 5:00pm on Saturday for a host of hands-on activities.
