Mothman Festival 2021 UPDATE
***After several meetings with local public health and city officials, the Mothman Festival team is saddened to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Mothman Festival scheduled for Sept 18th and 19th, 2021. We realize that some might not understand or realize that we are already in a vulnerable position with the festival crowd outnumbering our town by thousands. We operate with a small number of staff to handle that great of a load (many are our personal family and close friends). Local hospitalizations and active Covid cases are rising daily, and according to officials at our health department, are not expected to peak until right around Mothman Festival time. We are disappointed, it was not an easy decision to make, we can assure you of that. We cannot in good conscious jeopardize the health of our families, your families, or any family that calls Mason County WV home. We appreciate you guys, and we hope that we’ll see you again when things are more manageable and safe. - Also note, if you have purchased tickets for the bus tours, your money will be refunded, and all of our vendors have been emailed prior to this notice. Here’s hoping to a better 2022.***
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.
