Annual Green Bean Celebration cancels for caution

BUCKHANNON — Although plans were made, with rising COVID numbers and safety in mind, the 5th Annual Green Bean Celebration has been cancelled.

This Friday, August 13, would have been the first day of the beloved and benevolent returning event that will no longer include the amazing Green Bean Cook-Off planned in conjunction with Festival Fridays. The delicious event for a good cause would have taken place at Jawbone Park, with judge’s samples starting at 6 p.m.  For details regarding the cancelation, you can email [email protected] or call (304) 472-2146.

The following day at 9 a.m., the annual 1-mile stroll will no longer be held at the Buckhannon River Walk out of an abundance of caution. If you would still like to make a donation of green beans or make a monetary donation, those can still be given to the Upshur Parish House to help feed those in need.
