Shortline Ramp Festival Is Canceled

By Staff | Feb 6, 2018

The Wetzel County Chamber of Commerce and the Community Planning Committee has announced that the 2018 Shortline Ramp Festival has been cancelled.

“Canceling the festival was not an easy decision, but without community involvement there is no festival,” the chamber said in its public statement.

The chamber went on to say no non-profits had applied to do the Ramp Dinner, “nor did we have enough community involvement for the planning and preparation to make this year’s event possible.”

“We sincerely thank those who have participated in this event in the past. It has been growing since its beginning five years ago. To guarantee safety and continuation of the family fun day we will be needing volunteers to step forward to make this event possible. We hope you will join us in bringing the festival back in 2019, bigger and better than ever before. We will be having a community meeting in November to assess interest in having the Ramp Festival in 2019.”
