1. Re: things to do in beckley the second week in oct.

Not sure if there are any festivals of any kind that weekend. The 1st weekend (sat) there is our annual Chili Night in October. They close off the main streets in downtown, you can sample many types of chili as well as numerous other food items. Live music as well. Lots of fun! The 3rd Saturday in October is Bridge Day in Fayetteville. (about 25 minutes from Beckley) A huge, fun festival...where BASE Jumpers jump off the New River Gorge Bridge all day long...and people can walk out on the bridge as well. Food and arts and crafts vendors are all along the road leading up to the bridge. It is a blast...and a huge event. Sometimes close to 100,000 people. If you really have to come that 2nd weekend, you can still go to the bridge and go to the overlook. Very pretty. You could also go to Grandview St Park and walk around the trails and go to the overlook there. It is 3 miles off of I-64. Little Beaver St. Park is very close too..you could easily do both parks in one day. Stop at Tamarack off of I-77. A beautiful arts and crafts and souvineer shop. Gorgeous WV made items there of all kinds. Good food too. On Sundays at 2:00 they have free concerts in the theatre there.

Agree with all of the above. Also the Beckley exhibition coal mine is still open then, you can tour the mine in a coal car, visit the housing, etc.

Right...the Coal Mine is very interesting to go thru. That's a nice little park too...New River Park. Has a fitness trail winding thru it. Also, there is a very cool miniature golf course right off the main road when you get off the Interstate. It is behind a little souvineer shop..Little Brick House. Each hole represents something about West Virginia. Lots of fun! (be sure to watch the video!).....
