Luxury is: Finding the Fall Fun
For people seeking fun activities around Morgantown, West Virginia this fall, it may seem like WVU football is the only game in town, but don’t be deceived. Whether you love the arts, Halloween celebrations, outdoor adventure, or touring gorgeous homes, our town has much more to offer than touchdowns and tailgating.
Get into the Halloween spirit
Legends say that every October the undead walk the streets of Morgantown in a ghoulish search for living brains. This year’s Zombie Walk takes place the evening of Saturday, October 08—and you’re invited to join in the moans and groans.
Don’t have a zombie costume? No worries, because two High Street businesses are hosting pre-walk parties (Gibbie’s Pub & Eatery and The Morgantown Art Bar) featuring make-up and prosthetic artists, along with other fun Halloween-themed activities. You might want to make an appointment, however, as Kelcee Gregory, Ashley Durnal, and Dayla Murphy are already booking slots for total zombification.
Although it sounds like gruesome fun, it’s all for a good cause, because the event’s organizers will accept donations of canned food for local foodbanks, before taking their own unsteady steps down High Street.
Learn about the cultural contributions of Indigenous Appalachians
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Indigenous Appalachians, WVU Libraries will present an amazing opportunity to hear from several experts on this topic. The event also includes an extensive art exhibition curated by Indigenous Appalachians and scholars of Native American Studies. The launch for this exhibit is scheduled for 7 pm on November 14, 2022, in WVU’s Downtown Library
If you miss the physical show, don’t worry. It will also be presented digitally on the WVU Libraries’ exhibition website and archived in WVU’s Research Repository.
Visit a vibrant public arts scene—at your own pace
Although there have always been plenty of talented artists living in the Morgantown area, the visibility of local arts has increased by leaps and bounds across the past two decades, due in large part to public arts projects supported by the Arts Council of Greater Morgantown . These edifying projects range from outdoor statues and murals to indoor displays in galleries, museums, libraries, and more.
To see what our local artists have done to beautify our hometown, check out The Clio’s self-guided tours for Downtown Morgantown, Greater Morgantown, and Evansdale and Star City.
See nature’s palette from a zipline
If you’re looking for outdoor adventure, check out WVU’s zipline canopy tour located just 15 miles from Morgantown on the north side of Cooper’s Rock State Forest. The Adventure WV tour is comprised of 4 zip-lines, 7 tree-based platforms, an aerial bridge, aerial ladder, and a rappel station to exit the course. Thrill seekers who schedule soon can experience a breathtaking ride through all the autumnal beauty they can handle! For more information, visit Adventure West Virginia.
