The leaves are beginning to display their autumn colors just in time for the Leaf Peepers Festival, September 24-26.

This year marks the 22nd year for this exciting community event. Every year MountainMade works with the Alpine Festival, the Tucker Community Foundation, and the Tucker County Chamber of Commerce to coordinate the events that our visitors from near and far enjoy.

This year will feature a Fireman’s Parade on Friday and a car show on Sunday. This year the annual Tucker County Chamber of Commerce Silent Auction will be held from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Davis Fire Hall on Saturday. MountainMade has donated a basket of handmade candles to the event. Profits from the auction help defray the costs associated with the festival.

MountainMade hopes you will visit the Gallery during the event. The Gallery’s featured artist this month is Bruce Wilson who makes much of his own papers and using flowers, leaves, fibers, etc. to create.  An archivist by education, he elegantly mattes and frames each piece under archival glass.

MountainMade will host its traditional food tasting on Saturday and Sunday. A variety of West Virginia food artisans will be featured. In addition, a special selection of items will be discounted for the event.

MountainMade staff hopes you will drop by the Gallery on Douglas Road sometime over the Festival weekend.
