June 11-15, 2018

Learning Day Camp is the highlight of our educational activities. We bring area children to the center for extra educational opportunities from certified teachers who are experts in reading and math to reinforce the skills taught at school. The individual attention and camp setting gives the children the chance to find out that learning can be fun.

Culturefest 2017 event header
Culturefest World Music & Arts Festival, presented by LLyniuM entertainment, is a weekend long immersion in the creative arts featuring 4 stages of music and dance performances, workshops, children’s activities, artisan vendors, healing arts, camping and more here at the beautiful ASFC. A cornerstone of the blossoming creative scene in Southern WV, it is a convergence of creative minds and offers artists and festival goers from all around WV the opportunity to mix and mingle with those coming from as far away as NYC and the west coast, as well as international touring artists. Music performances span genres from Americana and Appalachian Folk to Soul-Rock, Funk, Jazz and World Fusion to experimental genres like Experiential Spiritual Folk and New Mexican Space Music. Workshops explore yoga, drumming, belly dance, electronic music, up-cycled art and more, and facilitated discussions called “Conversations at Culturefest” delve into topics such as ayurveda, solar power and medicinal plants. Life-like dinosaur puppets roam the site all weekend and telescopes are available for star and planet gazing. Roaming performers tell stories through dance and fire spinners light up the night. Artisans vend wares from handmade clothing to jewelry to fine art and more. The children’s village features special yoga classes, found object art, craft projects, a kids’ costume parade led by a fairy on stilts and other colorful characters. Inflatable furniture lounges make relaxing spots to kick back and unwind, and provide shelter so the fun can continue in case of rain. Guests may camp on site for the weekend, and immerse themselves in the colorful experience in the beautiful WV mountains or enjoy the amenities of nearby Pipestem State Park. The goal of the festival is to promote unity and respect for diversity, and bring people together though music and the arts. It has become a convergence of creative minds and a holiday for the arts community of Southern West Virginia.
