Bluefield College continues Appalachian tradition

Posted:
BLUEFIELD, Va. (WVVA) -- The sights, sounds and tastes of Appalachia were out for all to see at a local college.

Bluefield College held their third annual Appalachian Festival Saturday.  The event featured local artists, crafters, musicians, cooks, authors and more.  

It started in 2011 with a year-long emphasis in Appalachian heritage and culture, as a way to share with students who were not originally from the region what it means to be Appalachian.
