From Augusta Festival Website:

The 2019 Augusta Festival Juried Craft Fair will be held Saturday, July 27, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Elkins City Park in Elkins, West Virginia. It is part of the Augusta Festival, which runs from Friday through Sunday. The Augusta Festival celebrates Appalachian heritage arts and folk life with live music, dancing, the WV Open Fiddle & Banjo Contest, workshops, demonstrations children's activities, and a juried craft fair. After the craft fair closes, there will be an evening concert in the Harper-McNeeley Auditorium of Myles Center for the Arts followed by a square dance in the Augusta Dance Pavilion.

The Augusta Festival is organized by the Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College, an organization dedicated to the preservation of traditional folkways. The Festival is the culminating event of a multi-week summer workshop series, and is an annual highlight of Augusta's summer session.

The location of the Augusta Festival Juried Craft Fair is Elkins City Park, a wooded site with pavilions, picnic tables, and a playground. Although Elkins is located in the mountains, the park itself is level. Due to trees throughout the park, most booth locations will alternate between shade and sun at different times of day. The park is adjacent to Davis & Elkins College on Sycamore Street. Attendance has been estimated as ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 people. Participants visit the Festival from the local area and around the world.
