COVID-19 Update from New River Gorge CVB

The New River Gorge CVB and the surrounding areas are all focused on the health and well-being of those in our area. While we gradually reopen for business, we want to ensure that everyone has an amazing and safe experience in our region.

With that being said, a number of events have been postponed and/or canceled. We are updating our website calendars as quickly as possible, based on the information that is available, but we ask that you please visit the website or social media pages of each individual event or contact the event organizers directly for the most up-to-date information.

Additionally, restaurants and food service establishments are currently offering outdoor, carry-out, drive-thru, and delivery options.  We encourage you to check with the establishment directly 

We strongly encourage you to support these and other local businesses in our communities and across the state.

The visitor center will be open to the public on Friday, May 22 with restrictions.
