Scotts Run Street Fair returns on Saturday

A day celebrating the traditions of music, art and community, the Annual, Scotts Run Street Fair, returns to the streets of Osage from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday.

Put on by the Scotts Run Museum and Trail and Scotts Run Resonance Project, attractions will include musical performances from regional favorites and Osage residents “Appalachian Soul Man” Aristotle Jones and Al Anderson’s Rock n’ Soul Revue.

Some other musical acts performing that day are Soup Camel’s Musical Menagerie, Brazilian Folk singing from La Bohemia Caporali y sus amigos, a Steel Drum exhibition by CB Studios. The Osage Gospel ‘N Soul Community Choir will be making its debut, and the Morgantown Swing Dance Club rounds off the list of

An addition to the Scotts Run Street Fair this year is the Children’s Entertainment area, where there will be offerings for kids that include a puppet show at 2 p.m., a printmaking workshop with Eddie Spaghetti, face-painting, as well as an exclusive dollhouse exhibit featuring handmade replicas of homes of the coal miners of Scotts Run made by teens under the direction of elders who lived in them.

There will also be a cross-generational Repair Café, where attendees can learn new skills such as repairing lamps and bikes or braiding and styling hair.

Food and craft vendors will line the sidewalks along Scotts Run Road, selling jewelry and tasty treats ranging from the miner pepperoni rolls and baked goods, to homemade ice cream, roasted corn, ribs and a fish fry.

This is a free family-friendly celebration of the traditions of art, music and the communities of Scotts Run. Parking is free and admission is free.

The Scotts Run Street Fair is partly funded by the Scotts Run Resonance project, making it bigger and better this year. The Scotts Run Resonance Project is a collaboration between The Shack, The Scott’s Run Settlement House and the Scotts Run Museum and Trail. The Resonance project is a Central Appalachian Living Traditions grant from and aims to pass on history, music, food and repair
traditions to a new generation.
