Organizers Putting Final Touches on OglebayFest Weekend

Posted: Updated:

One of the most anticipated fall events in the Ohio Valley will take place this weekend.

Setup is in full swing for OglebayFest, the weekend-long festival held at Oglebay Resort.

Organizers began setting up tents last week, and Thursday, they were running electricity and lights as vendors were scrambling to get their tents up and ready for the Friday kick-off.

"We're putting the final touches on everything, getting the food moved into the various locations, getting the beverages lined up, just doing all the final things now to get ready for the great weekend we're going to have," John Hargleroad, Director of Park Operations at Oglebay, told 7News Thursday.

The artists market will open at 12pm Friday. The whole event continues through 6 p.m. Sunday. For a full list of this weekend's events, visit
