Local festival representatives to attend State Convention

Several Beckley Renaissance committee members representing local festivals (Beckley's Kids Classic Festival, Appalachian Festival, & the Rocket Boys Festival) will attend the West Virginia Fairs and Festivals Convention to be held in Charleston on January 10 & 11, 2014.  The annual convention will feature a trade show, entertainment showcase, workshops, business meeting, and a pageant.
Heather Roberts (Miss Beckley's Kids Classic Festival), Clara Maynard (Miss Appalachian Festival) and Carly Jo Stover (Miss Rocket Boys Festival) will represent Beckley area festivals in this year's pageant.  Queens from festivals across West Virginia will compete for the crown of the 2014 West Virginia Fairs & Festivals Queen, who will also serve as the State Fair Queen. Competitions include event promotion, interview, and evening gown. 
Jill Moorefield of Beckley Renaissance says, "The convention is a great opportunity for festival and event planners to obtain useful information and contacts."  For more details about the convention, visit the association's web site www.wvfairsandfestivals.com.
