A Beckley festival is moving to a new location.
The eighth annual sweet treats festival is being moved to the Beckley Intermodal Gateway Plaza. It'll be the first ever event hosted at the plaza located on Neville Street. The festival is set for May 10th and will feature vendors and music from local public schools.
"The festival has two big highlights. One is the desert tasting which we have different desert vendors set up and people that buy tickets get the chance to sample some of the deserts and we also have Raleigh County schools that we partner with and their music departments so they'll probably be eight to 10 different schools that will be performing" Jill Moorefield said.
Proceeds of the event will benefit the United Way.
