“I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks” ~ Shakespeare


I want to give a special thanks to the Hardy County Community, the Hardy County Public Library, the Board of HCT&CA, Community sponsors, and the property owners who open up their homes for tours. It takes a village to make this weekend a success and I thank all of you for helping!

“It’s not the honor you take with you but the Heritage you leave behind”


The Heritage Weekend Festival is 63 years old this year. This event started with a dream of a few good people in Hardy County as a way of raising money for the public library, the hub of every small town. Last year was a great success and we were able to contribute nicely to the library. That is our goal again this year.

Heritage weekend is a unique event and is the only countrywide fair or festival in West Virginia and we sure have something for everyone. Hardy County is seeping in American History and we are trying to preserve it by showing the younger generation what is was like living here in bygone days. Each year a historical home is highlighted and profiled on a decorative tile. We are pleased to announce this year’s tile house, Garret VanMeter House.

Come participate and enjoy the food, music, arts, craft show, car show, homes tours, walking tours, civil war encampments, historic church services, historic clothing display, train ride, kid activities and so much more that will take place throughout Hardy and Grant Counties.

Have a great time and come back and see us next year!
