BUCKHANNON — For the second Friday in a row, Buckhannon hosted a successful Festival Fridays event for all to enjoy despite heavy rains and threats of flash flooding. In Jawbone Park, tents lined both sides of the pavilions as small businesses and members of the community displayed their many talents and crafts.
Taking place every Friday this summer, Festival Fridays will offer live music, showcasing an opening band from 5-6 p.m., and a headlining band from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This week, Buckhannon-Upshur High School’s Jazz Band opened for The Jesse Milnes Band—both sharing their great talents and music as guests gathered to enjoy live music for one of the first times in over a year.
In addition to live music, Festival Friday goers can enjoy a variety of food vendors, farmer’s market produce, face painting, tie-dyed clothes, art pieces, handmade jewelry, locally grown flowers, honey, and so much more.

Country rock musician Michael Christopher will treat the crowd to wonderful music as next week’s headliner on June 18. Next Friday, rain or shine, bring a chair to Jawbone Park to enjoy free music, delicious food, locally made crafts, and activities for the entire family.
