Welcome to the West Virginia Bigfoot Festival

The West Virginia Bigfoot Festival was first held on June 26th, 2021 and marked the grand opening of The West Virginia Bigfoot Museum. The festival was the first of its kind in Sutton and gained state-wide notoriety leading up to the event. The very first year, the festival drew a large crowd and caught statewide media attention. The festival was attended by approximately 1,200 – 1,500 people and featured a Bigfoot symposium. Vendors, food, Bigfoot researchers, art, and of course, the Bigfoot Museum itself, provided a great experience and made the first annual West Virginia Bigfoot Festival a success.

The West Virginia Bigfoot Festival is an annual festival located in downtown Sutton, West Virginia, and consists of speakers, activities, competitions, live music, food, and a great variety of vendors. The event is located in the center of West Virginia so that people from all across the state can easily participate and attend. The festival prides itself on being a family friendly and informative event that will celebrate West Virginia history and one of Appalachia’s most famous legends!

The West Virginia Bigfoot Festival is a project of The West Virginia Bigfoot Museum, and the festival committee plans on increasing the size of the event over the next few years, with the goal of making it one of the best Bigfoot festivals in America!
