The 13th Annual St. Albans Founders Day will be held on Main Street, Saturday, May 12, 2018, from 10 - 4 pm. The 1st Annual Founders Day Weekend began in October, 2006 by the St. Albans Rennaisance Group and the St. Albans Historical Society. Now sponsored solely by the St. Albans Founder's Day Committee and the St. Albans Historical Society, this event brings people to Main Street for food, arts & crafts and plenty of entertainment and helps to celebrate the history of St. Albans and also promotes the businesses downtown. There will be over 40 vendors and food booths as well as singers and entertainers. Some of the entertainment will be the Kidd  Family, Rodney Miles band - Mountain Grass Band, Mountain Valley Cloggers, “Happy Steppers”, Tornado Apostolic singers, Kanawha Valley Pipe and Drum Corp, and the Mountaineer Dulcimer Club. The entertainment will be on the porch of Multiple Ventilations System (Old Herberts Music).
THERE WILL NOT BE A PARADE THIS YEAR.  (It is really hard to get school bands this time of year near school's end).
This year the old Herbert’s Music Company, owned by Frank McCormick, will be used for art displays throughout the day and also showing vintage St. Albans videos inside throughout the day. The newly refurbished City Restrooms will be open that day....located to the rear of the Old City Hall.
