CELEBRATE THE LEGEND
WHAT IS MOTHMAN FESTIVAL?
Mothman Festival is an annual event held every third weekend in September that commemorates the 1966 Point Pleasant, West Virginia Mothman sighting, which gave birth to the infamous red-eyed winged legend. People from all over the world gather around our charming Main Street to celebrate their favorite cryptid during this one of a kind event.

The 2017 Mothman Festival will be dedicated to the memory of our beloved Carolin Harris, former co-director of the Mothman Festival. She was a mother figure to all who visited her at Harris Steak House in her 40+ years of service. We will also be honoring the 46 lives lost in the Silver Bridge tragedy that took place 50 years ago this year. Ironically, both Carolin's son Timothy and his father, both perished in the Silver Bridge collapse.
A new exhibit dedicated to Carolin Harris (owner and proprietor of Harris Steak House - aka the orginial Mothman Diner) will be proudly displayed at the Mothman Museum. Her soda fountain, still in tact from the time she opened in the 1960's, is a part of the exhibit, as well as the counter where patrons from all over the world would sit and dine.
