Flip Flop Festival

In its fourth year, the Flip Flop Festival kicked off the outdoor recreation season in Harpers Ferry and Bolivar, West Virginia. Event highlights included a festival quest, local vendors, live music, a craft beer tasting, a farmer’s market, a climbing wall, and a first-ever flip flopper reunion. Workshops and activities helped introduce festival-goers to the wide variety of outdoor pursuits available in Harpers Ferry, as well as prepare current and future flip floppers for sustainable thru-hikes beginning mid-Trail. These innovative thru-hikes not only offer benefits to hikers but help conserve the Trail by dispersing use and helping sustain local Trail-friendly businesses in their shoulder seasons.
