The West Virginia RoadKill Cook-off is one of the region’s most fun and exciting annual events. In years past, the Food Network, the Travel Channel and the Discovery Channel have all covered this wild and offbeat festival! If you’ve ever wanted to taste exotic dishes like squirrel gravy over biscuits, teriyaki-marinated bear or deer sausage, this is the place to be!

Cooking starts at 9 a.m. — judging starts at noon — and you can taste the grub after 11:00 a.m. or whenever your stomach is ready!  Tasting ticket sales close at 1:00 p.m.
