The third annual West Virginia Bigfoot Festival will be kicking off this Saturday, June 24, at 9:00 a.m. The festival is hosted by the West Virginia Bigfoot Museum and was founded by David, Louis, and Laurel Petolicchio in 2021.
Located in Historic Downtown Sutton, this year’s festival features nearly 100 vendors, several food trucks, live music, and a Bigfoot researcher symposium located in the old Fisher building.
“I think this will be our largest event yet” said David Petolicchio, one of the owners of the West Virginia Bigfoot Festival and the West Virginia Bigfoot Museum, “We’ve built a good rapport with vendors and researchers, and we have had amazing turnouts for our vendors. I think the West Virginia Bigfoot Festival will continue to grow over the next few years and will really help promote Braxton County and bring new visitors from all over the United States.”
This year’s festival has been directed by Laurel Petolicchio, and she looks forward to making a positive difference for the community, “We are really proud of how much this event has grown and we are so excited to see it help Sutton and revive our town.”
The West Virginia Bigfoot Festival is rapidly becoming one of the largest events of its type in the state and is working on expanding and including other events and organizations from around the United States in an effort to make it one of the premier cryptozoology events in the world.
