Welcome to Hinton!

Welcome to the online home of the Hinton Railroad Days Festival! This traditional West Virginia festival is one of the premier events of its kind in the state, and attracts thousands of visitors to the region this fall.

This year, the Railroad Days Festival will take place October 22, 23, 24 and 25 of 2020. You read that correctly- we’re beginning Railroad Days on a Thursday! We’re proud to partner with our great friends at the City of Hinton as well as Explore Summers County to bring you this wonderful event.
