Organizers, sponsoring partners and almost 800 interpreters, craftsmen and volunteers are fine-tuning countless details for the opening of the 2022 edition of the Hay Creek Festival.
Festival-goers will witness what a day in the 19th-century Joanna Furnace community would have looked like during this family-friendly event.
Running Friday through Sunday, Sept. 9-11, the 46th annual event is held on the grounds of the historic Joanna Furnace Ironworks, an 18th and 19th Century charcoal fueled iron furnace and community in Robeson Township near Morgantown.
Visitors travel through time and experience life in a rural industrial iron-making village. The interpretation timeline runs from the beginning of the furnace in 1791 up to the 1950s. Experience the sights, sounds, aromas and activities which have long since disappeared from contemporary life.
