It’s almost that time of year again, time for the 2nd Annual Snowshoe WV Freefall Festival! Bigger and better than last year’s festival, the 2014 Freefall Festival which takes place from September 26 through the 28 is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. The musical acts scheduled to be at this year’s festival includes the musical stylings of Michael Frantit and Spearhead, the sweet sounds of Slightly Stoopid and last but not least G. Love and Special Sauce. Although the musical line up this year is going to be amazing there is also lots more to do at Freefall Festival…
For the beer lovers out there, the Snowshoe WV Freefall Festival provides plenty of chances to sample some of the finest micro-brewed beers from around the area and the country. This is a great way to find out what’s new on the craft beer scene and you might even find a new favorite brand. Along with a cold brew, guests of the festival will be able to enjoy some of the best local BBQ around and who doesn’t like BBQ? Other kinds of food will also be available for guest to enjoy during the festival.
Those who like a little more action will be happy to learn that there are two very competitive mountain bike races taking place during the festival. On September the 27th, the Snowshoe Gravity Series Race 3 will take place and will allow competitors to take on a challenging downhill track. Riders will experience a 1500 vertical descent as they race down the mountain in hopes of winning it all. A second mountain bike race will take place on the next day on September the 28th. The WVMBA XC Championship is a race hosted by Snowshoe Mountain. This race will determine the winner of the West Virginia Mountain Bike Series and is the final race of the season.
Another opportunity that guests can enjoy during the festival is the Lifestyle Camp. This activity is packed with outdoor activities and various sporting events that also takes place during the entire festival. This will give guests a chance to be a part of the festivities and get some exercise while having a blast. There is also a DockDogs® competition that will take place for guests to get involved with.
On Saturday night visitors of the festival will be treated to ski movie premieres that are sure to please. After the movie premieres everyone is invited to come out and enjoy a fireworks display which is a perfect way to end a spectacular evening out under the stars.
So if you are looking for something exciting to do this September, why not come to the 2nd Annual Freefall Festival? There is nothing like a weekend filled with music, food and great outdoor activities. So bring the whole family and come on down.

Craft beers, BBQ and G. Love and Special Sauce?? A great combo! In all honesty, mountain biking isn’t really my thing but I have been to a few events/races with my boyfriend – this might be the one I go back to!
This definitely sounds like a blast! Mountain biking, beer, music and more… It sounds like it is
time for me to plan next year’s family trip… and I know exactly where the
destination will be 😉

Beautiful scenery, awesome music, mico-brewed beer! Is this heaven or what! Plus have you seen the DockDogs! That is the BEST competitions I have ever seen. It is amazing to watch those dogs and see the skill them babies have. My favorite is the “Big Air” competition!
Let’s not forget the food, who doesn’t love a good ole BBQ. Man I am so going to check this out and see about going. I am off that Friday (Sept. 26th), so could leave out of here and have the best weekend. Now I am excited!
This sounds very relaxing and down to earth. I am not much of a drinker, so the beer does nothing for me – BUT I do enjoy a great bbq. Any kind of trip that involves the right amount of nature and fun sounds like a great trip to me!
What a wonderful festival and Lifestyle Camp offers a variety of great activities! Wish I knew about this in September…I’ve only heard and read great things about it.
