Upcoming evernts, happenings, festivals and specials in Berkeley Springs, WV

Week of April 21-27, 2014

With spring in full swing loaded with blooming trees and greening grass, there's also lots happening. And activities cover the spectrum from the biggest weekend of the year in pro-wrestling to pen and ink on fabric class.

It may seem incongruous to have a major pro-wrestling presence in a famous art town but -- it is art. Theater. Movement. It all starts Friday at 8pm with The Class of 2014 being inducted into the Covey Pro Hall of Fame, free and open to the public at Berkeley Springs High School Theatre. On Saturday afternoon from noon to 2pm, you can meet the wrestlers at Kimberley's, a new shop at the north end of the Old Factory Antique Mall. The major action starts at 6:30pm with All or Nothing VIII including wrestling superstars, a heavyweight champion match and several other thrilling matches all at the Berkeley Springs High School Gym.

There's less strenuous night life this weekend too. The Star Theatre is showing the action drama "Divergent" on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8pm. The Star also has a special screening of an indie film at 1:30pm on Sunday. "Day of the Gun" is an authentic western with scenes from nearby Maryland and sponsored by the Hancock Arts Council. The audience has a chance to meet with the actors and filmmaker after the film.

There's also great local music Saturday night from 6:30-10pm at BlackCat Music. The all-ages show features All Grassed Up playing traditional and contemporary bluegrass. Ambrae House opens their outdoor deck on Saturday night with the music of guitarist, Jim Fredo.

It's the annual WV Winemaster's Dinner at Highlawn Inn on Saturday at 7pm. Reservations are needed. The exquisite menu five course silver service dinner is paired with complimentary Fisher Ridge Wine.

There are afternoon activities on both Saturday and Sunday. Cheryl Rink is teaching Pen and Ink Fabric Painting on Saturday from 1 to 4pm at the Ice House using Tsukineko Inks and techniques similar to water color. Nearby at The New Earth Granary, Tamme Marggraf leads a workshop: "The Divine Feminine" from 10am to noon. Out at Hillbilly Heaven, there's a car show from 11am to 1pm and a BBQ dinner from 5-7pm to benefit June Moore.

On Sunday, start your day with the Berkeley Springs Farmers Market in the square from 10am to 2pm. Across the street at the Berkeley Springs State Park from 1 to 3pm the Wind Dance Farm celebrates spring with music and an old fashion cake walk. At 2 and 3pm the Berkeley Springs High School Band and Warm Springs Middle School Band respectively give concerts with a reception to follow. Both concerts are in the high school auditorium. From 3-5pm Sunday afternoon, the folks at Panorama at the Peak celebrate Earth Day with author Shepherd Ogden, founder of the Cook's Garden Seed Company who is presenting the 35 year history of the organic farm and local food movement. After the presentation, there is a limited seating Community Table dinner.

And all this fun and excitement is just the special stuff happening only this weekend. All the time you can enjoy cutting edge -- and affordable -- spas, diverse dining for every meal of the day, great outdoor fun on Cacapon State Park's many hiking trails, and shopping of a sort that will have you coming back for more every day. Take some time to learn all about this precious spot marked by famed warm springs at the Museum of the Berkeley Springs in the park and open from 11am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. There's another museum type display of local quilts at the Ice House on Saturday and Sunday where the annual Quilt Show offers a sales opportunity as well as display of two floors of fabric art from 11am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday.

We urge you to stay overnight or two or three to enjoy every morsel of good food and soothing spas. There is a wide range of choice in lodging from the iconic Country Inn next to the springs to an array of cottages and vacation homes. Elegant B&Bs are available in town as well as uniquely furnished suites. We even have the name-brand Best Western- Berkeley Springs Inn. Ask about various packages and different amenities so the selection you make is perfect for you. Driving over the mountain to get to Berkeley Springs is a splendid journey in whites and hot pink redbud and shiny new green. Make it the journey you take this weekend.
