New River Gorge Area Events

Mix it up!

You can come to the New River Gorge for some adventure. And then you can come for some adventure and a big celebration. We have them all year long. The only question is this:

Which ones will you come to?

Seasonal Events

Since we have 4 distinct seasons here in the gorge, we feel the need to celebrate. A lot. Our events aren’t always tied to a season, but the weather around here is so distinctly awesome, they might as well be.

Spring is renewal, getting outside, and doing what we love best: enjoying the gorge. Summer is an invitation for everyone to come up and enjoy (and we’re within a day’s drive of 50% of the population). Fall doesn’t get much better than the New River Gorge. When the leaves turn, it’s time to celebrate again. Maybe that’s why we host West Virginia’s biggest one day festival.

Bridge Day

Bridge Day is the largest extreme sports event in the world. It’s amazing. Trust us.

Bridge Day is held on the third Saturday in October every year in Fayetteville, West Virginia. Hundreds of BASE jumpers and nearly 100,000 spectators are expected to attend this year’s Bridge Day. The New River Gorge Bridge is 876′ tall and the world’s second longest single arch bridge.

Who wouldn’t want to see someone jump off it?
