Flip Flop Festival: Celebrating the Appalachian Trail in Harpers Ferry and Bolivar

The ATC Flip Flop Festival joins the communities of Harpers Ferry and Bolivar in celebrating their roles as Appalachian Trail communities. At the third annual launch of this two-day event, festival goers can look forward to live entertainment, vendors from the surrounding communities, fun and educational activities for children (and adults!), and a special evening speaker. On Sunday, there will be a pancake breakfast, an African American History Hike guided by an interpretive National Park Service ranger, and more. Both days will feature workshops related to hiking and learning about and enjoying the history and recreational opportunities in and around Harpers Ferry.

We'll also have an Leave No Trace awareness workshop, backpack shakedowns, and demonstrations on food storage in the backcountry.

PATC will have a booth at the event on Saturday and we look forward to seeing you there!
