About the Elkins Ramp Festival...
What would a springtime visit to West Virginia be without a trip to a ramp festival? While West Virginians celebrate their bountiful food harvests from spring to fall with plenty of other festivals, these festivals in late April and early May, devoted to the pungent and flavorful ramp are uniquely Appalachian and fun for everyone. Enjoy a home cooked dinner of ham, potatoes, beans and bread along with ramp cook-offs, musical entertainment and plenty of local characters. One of the best known of the WV ramp festivals is celebrated in the town of Elkins.
