BUFFALO, W.Va. — Organizers say everyone from the youngest to the oldest should enjoy the 31st Annual Buffalo Octoberfest — an event full of free family fun activities, including music, crafts, home-style food booths, apple butter making, specialty food trucks, Living History actors, petting zoo, antiques, flea market, pony rides, games for kids, and kids’ inflatables.
“Whether you’re a parent, child, grandparent, music fan, crafter or vendor, the Buffalo Octoberfest promises to serve your needs,” said event organizer Jessica Coulson.
Buffalo Octoberfest is set for Saturday, Oct. 20, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and held on the historic 5-acre grounds of the Buffalo Shopping Center, which once housed the largest general store on this side of the Mississippi River. The location is off Route 62, next to the old Buffalo High School, one mile north of the Toyota plant.
“Come have some good old-fashioned family fun at one of the last outdoor Fall festivals of the year,” Coulson said. “Experience one of the oldest and most historic towns on the Kanawha River. We are a community, a county, a region, a state that has much to offer. Celebrate your West Virginia pride, and show your family a great time! Come enjoy the day, and take advantage of the free parking and admission, and many free activities.”
Vendors, crafters, churches, clubs, organizations, and businesses are invited to set up a booth. Call 304-937-2747 for more information, directions, or to sign up for a $10 booth space.
