Fayetteville Welcomes Lafayette Flats 2nd Creative-in- Residence
The second 2021 New River Gorge Creative-in-Residence, Amy Pabst, started her month-long residency at Lafayette Flats last week! She loaded her fabric and her 1947 Singer Featherweight sewing machine into Eddy and immediately started quilting! Check out the photos of a quilt she recently finished. Isn’t it gorgeous? The fabric tiles are so tiny that it’s hard to believe it’s even possible! We can’t wait to see what she creates while in Fayetteville.

Fayetteville’s Adult Egg Hunt
Friday, March 19 8pm Fayetteville Town Park
Why should kids have all the fun? Join us for Fayetteville’s Adult Easter Egg Hunt. This is a fundraising event, thank you for your support! You will not want to miss out on this “Eggciting” opportunity. We will have hundreds of eggs hidden all over. Many of the eggs will be filled with coupons to redeem “Eggcellent” prizes.
You must have a wristband to participate and be 21 or older to enter the hunt. To make it a little more challenging you will be hunting for the eggs in the dark. Join us for a fun glow-in-the-dark night hunt!
Fayetteville’s Egg Hunt (Kids)
Saturday, March 27, Fayetteville Town Park
The Fayetteville Convention & Visitors Bureau is hosting the Fayetteville Easter Egg Hunt. Join us for a fun-filled day of egg hunting in Fayetteville! The egg hunt will be free for all kids. We ask that you bring a basket or bag to gather your eggs. Kids will be separated into appropriate age groups for the hunt with limited group sizes. You must pre-register for the egg hunts so that we can follow COVID Guidelines with limited participants in each hunt. We ask that participants(2years+) and volunteers wear masks while participating unless you have a condition that prevents you from wearing a mask. There will be a 10 egg limit for each participant.
In an effort to make the egg hunt more accessible we will be hosting an all-inclusive hunt before the main festivities. No one is excluded from attending the main hunt and no one is required to attend only the accessible portion, it is just an added option for those that may find the hunt more enjoyable with a smaller crowd and less sensory overload. We have made modifications for this hunt with areas that will be wheelchair accessible and we will have a number of beeping eggs available. Participants will receive a color card and will be on a mission to find 10 eggs that match their assigned color. For those that are high risk or do not feel comfortable, we also have the option for goodie bag signups. Participants can receive take-home bags that can be picked up at the visitor center. If your child has food allergies candy eggs can be traded in for one prize from the prize table at the end of the hunt.
The hunt will take place at the Fayetteville Town Park 330 Park Drive Fayetteville, WV 25840
We will meet at Shelter #2 between the basketball court and playground.

It is important that you register under the time and hunt you plan to attend. Registration open on March 1st.
If you do not feel comfortable participating in person or are high risk you can sign up to receive an Easter goodie bag to pick up at the Fayetteville Visitor Center.
