Exhibit at Oglebayfest

Exhibit at Oglebayfest

Oglebayfest is largest arts festival in the greater Wheeling area. The Artists’ Market’s goal is to attract the best artists and crafters from throughout the tri-state region (and beyond) – and the Gourmet Market to attract the best specialty foods!

Oglebay Institute will be coordinating the Markets and jurying the show. High standards have been established that each artist must meet to be accepted, thus ensuring the integrity of the show.

The Phil Maxwell Artists’ and Gourmet Markets open the festival at noon on Friday. Saturday starts with the traditional Oglebayfest parade and ends with fireworks. The festival events continue through 5 p.m. on Sunday.

The Markets are located behind the historic Oglebay Institute Mansion Museum in scenic Oglebay Resort.
