The annual Vandalia Gathering is a free celebration of the traditional arts, music, dance, stories, crafts and foods of West Virginia. The Culture Center and Capitol Complex grounds play host to this expanding family-style gathering each year on Memorial Day weekend. The statewide folk festival, named for the proposed 14th British colony in America, pays tribute to the state's ethnic heritage through a variety of exhibitions and programs.
