Jackson’s Mill Jubilee coming up

August 16, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

A celebration of West Virginia's past, present and future is part of the annual Jackson's Mill Jubilee, set for Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 in Weston.

This three-day activity-packed festival takes place annually over Labor Day weekend on the grounds of historic West Virginia University Jackson's Mill. It features premium arts and craft vendors, food and a huge range of live music.

"This will be one of the most entertaining lineup of entertainers we have ever been able to provide for our Jubilee music fans," said Mark Lynch, the music chairperson.

Bill Adler, chairperson for the Jubilee committee, said, "Our slate of performers makes the Jubilee a real bargain for those attending. You won't find this caliber of family entertainment anywhere else for this price. That makes everything else at the Jubilee a bonus, so come out and enjoy it all for one great price."

Jubilee also will feature a historic area where visitors can watch wheat and corn being ground at the mill, tour the Old Jackson's Mill Museum, take in the Civil War re-enactor shows and tour the historical buckskinner encampment.

There also will be a variety of exhibits and demonstrations, a vintage car show, handwork exhibition, photography show, antique show and sale and a booksale celebrating West Virginian talent. Children's activities will include bubbles, face painting, a fire truck and more.

Fireworks are a hit with everyone on Saturday night.
