KENOVA, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — Another popular festival in the region has canceled most of its events for 2020.

The C-K AutumnFest Board of Directors announced the decision to cancel festivities in a social media post Wednesday. The cancellation also includes the Pumpkin House, which draws thousands each fall.

“The Board has been monitoring the COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines and we feel it is in the best interest and safety of our visitors, vendors and community to make this decision,” organizers said in a statement.

Also included in the cancellation are the AutumnFest pageant, parade, cruise-in, tractor show, arts & craft fair, canning competition, bake-off, concert series and kids activities, according to the post.



The Ceredo Farmers Market is scheduled to open for the season on Friday, June 26. The market will maintain hours of 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. every Friday and Saturday at the Town Shelter located on the parking lot of Mitch Stadium.

Anchor farms will again be the Greenbrier Farm of Fort Gay, operated by Bill and Dorothy Stewart, and Rocky Knob Farm of Pritchard, operated by Jason and Tab Ekers. In addition to the anchor farms, smaller specialty growers will provide “in season” specialty items and baked goods.

COVID-19 precautionary measures will be in effect, including the use of a curbside drive-thru lane where shoppers can order vegetables from the car. Shoppers beneath the shelter will be limited to six persons at a time for social distancing reasons, and gloves will be required for those persons that desire to feel the produce. Gloves and sanitizer will be provided by the Town at no cost.

Some details are subject to change in accordance to CDC guidelines. Stay Safe, Be Thoughtful. Thank you!

Secretary of State Mac Warner announced that he has issued guidance and a funding opportunity to assist county clerks with mailing an absentee ballot application to every registered voter in West Virginia for the May 12 Primary Election.

There are three simple steps for voting an absentee-by-mail ballot:

  1. The voter submits an absentee ballot application to their county clerk;
    (Watch your mail for the COVID-19 card mailed by your County Clerk the first week of April)
  2. Once approved, the county clerk will mail a postage prepaid absentee ballot with instructions and materials to the voter;
  3. The voter marks the absentee ballot according to the instructions and places it in the mail to be postmarked by Election Day, May 12, 2020.

The goal of this uniform, statewide mailing is to ensure every eligible voter has an opportunity to vote while protecting the health of voters, county clerks’ staff members, election workers, and the general public, while maximizing participation in the May 12 Primary Election.

Voters who do not wish to vote in person due to the coronavirus situation are eligible to request an absentee ballot by mail. Voters may still vote in-person during Early Voting (April 29-May 9) or on Election Day (May 12).
