With the start of a new year comes new beginnings and with new beginnings comes exciting news. Charleston will leap into the new year with vigor and anticipation as the community and businesses work toward the bright future of Hip. Historic...Almost Heaven, Charleston, West Virginia.
Fresh events, new openings, reimagined spaces and renovations are underway around town, making for an exciting 2016. We will celebrate long-standing traditions, but will welcome an abundance of growth to our economy and tourism. In 2015, we amplified tourism as a key industry in West Virginia and continued to build and remodel old and new buildings to improve our city’s infrastructure. We have also welcomed street art and bike lanes that make our streets livelier and more accessible than ever.
To show off our fresh look and growing makeover we will host a variety of events. Mountain Stage will produce one of its most anticipated seasons yet, as well as the Clay Center who will host national acts to wow you and your family. And to bring in the new, the Civic Center will start seeing changes as its $90 million renovation take shape while continuing to hold some of Charleston’s premier entertainment events and conventions. Charleston is also excited to announce the celebration of our inaugural Celtic heritage festival appropriately names the Celtic Calling. Get ready for a bounty of Scottish and Irish themed events around town!
