The 4th Annual Follow Your Bliss music festival Friday was held Friday, June 24 through Saturday, June 25, 2016 in beautiful Helvetia WV and the 5th will be June 23-24, 2017.. We look forward to having  another wild and wonderful weekend, full of great music, local food, arts and craft vendors, and the chance to see old, and to meet new friends. Our Festival is a FREE event, supported by donations from our attendees, volunteers, and vendors. Proceeds collected will go to Kultur Haus Helvetia and Hospice Corp. In 2016, we raised over $1700.00 for these. . . . and had a blast doing it!

Helvetia is a small village in north central West Virginia, originally settled by the Swiss in 1869, where music and community have deep and strong roots. The Hutte Restaurant (Facebook Page) is in the center of town. It, along with the Beekeeper Inn can provide bed and breakfast lodging. The Kultur Haus provides Wi-Fi and houses the General Store, Post Office, and Fasnacht Mask Museum, as well as the Alpen Lodge which features five bedrooms and a full kitchen. (Directions to Helvetia.)
