Blair Mountain Strike Supper
Join us for a Strike Supper this September 22nd in downtown Matewan. The supper will feature foods inspired by the many races and ethnicities represented in the unionist miners ranks. Besides great food, the Supper will also include the first ever Red Bandanna Awards, bestowed on modern-day West Virginia hellraisers, a raffle, a story collection booth, and a redneck portrait studio to round out the festivities. Museum Members who attend will receive special perks!
This Strike Supper also marks the beginning of our Blair Centennial Celebration in 2021. Museum partners from historic organizations, tourism offices, union locals, musicians, and reenactment society are invited to a Kick-off meeting prior to the Supper to get our Blair Centennial Planning underway! If your organization would like to help bring the Blair Centennial to life, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 304-546-8473.
The Blair Centennial Kick-off Meeting will be from 12:30-4:00pm, followed by the Supper from 4:30-7:00pm.
Thanks to our project sponsors: the Coal Heritage Area Authority and the Appalachian Community Fund.
And thanks to The West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition for the invitation to include this event in the Hatfield-McCoy Heritage Foods Dinner Series this fall!
Proceeds from the Blair Mountain Strike Supper will match a Blair Centennial Celebration Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
See ya for Supper!
