BECKLEY - Dozens of organizers are preparing for an annual event in Beckley that showcases local cuisine and entertainment.
Taste of Appalachia will take place in downtown Beckley this Saturday. Many restaurants are offering discounted food for the event. The "block party" is held in conjunction with this weekend's Appalachian Festival.
Jill Moorefield, director of Beckley Renaissance, likened the festival to “the last hurray for summer.”
Taste of Appalachia is Saturday night from 6 to 9 on Main and Neville Streets. It is free to attend.
