Local Events

Veges available at the Bereley Springs Farmers MarketThe Berkeley Springs Farmers Market features fresh produce from local farmers. The Berkeley Springs Farmers Market provides a venue for local growers and vendors to sell their produce and handmade jams, breads, and jellies directly to the consumer. The Market is held every Sunday from the first of May to the end of October, from 10am to 2pm . Several special events are scheduled during the season for community participation such as the peach pie and pumpkin carving contests.

The Morgan County FairThe Morgan County Fair takes place in Berkeley Springs, the first week of August each year. Our County Fair offers a myriad of things to do, observe, compete in, and enjoy such as: a petting zoo, pony rides, horseshoe tournaments, an animal naturalist, live hawk and butterfly presentations, search and rescue dog team demonstrations, all day movies, archery demonstrations and contests, local authors book signings, a history chair, a civil war encampment, barbershop comedy quartet, and bagpipes and gospel music just to name a few.

The Apple Butter FestivalThe Apple Butter Festival is held every year over the Columbus Day weekend. This is the culminating event marking the end of the apple season here in the Eastern Panhandle. It features apple butter making in the town square all day long, a parade, arts, crafts, music and entertainment, games, contests, and lots of food, especially apple butter. It's my favorite fall event - it's one you don't want to miss!


The annual Uniquely WV Wine TastingThe Berkeley Springs Winter Festival of the Waters is a three month long celebration of the healing power of water, featuring special packages, sales and events all winter long. Chase away the winter blues in Berkeley Springs: The Country's First Spa, and enjoy ancient healing for the new millennium.
