CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The 34th Annual Buffalo Octoberfest is set for Saturday, Oct.15, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the historic five-acre grounds of the Buffalo Shopping Center, which organizers said once housed the largest general store on this side of the Mississippi River and the second largest in the country.
The location is on WV 62, next to the old Buffalo High School, one mile north of the Toyota Plant in Buffalo, which is in Putnam County.
“Buffalo Octoberfest is full of free family activities for everyone to enjoy, from kids to seniors. This includes music, crafts, home-style food booths, apple butter making, specialty food trucks, free petting zoo, antiques, flea market, free pony rides, games for kids, free kids’ inflatables and more! Kids wearing a costume will receive a $5 voucher to be used at the festival,” a spokesperson said.
“Whether you’re a crafter, vendor, music fan, parent, or child who is looking for fun, Buffalo Octoberfest promises to serve your needs. Come have some good old-fashioned family fun at one of the last outdoor Fall festivals of the year! 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 WV pride, and show your family a great time!
