Dirt Days Festival Set For July 22nd - 25th in Williamson


The Dirt Days Festival is returning to downtown Williamson later this month.


The second ever Dirt Days Festival will take place between July 22 and July 25.


The festival showcases some of the best side-by-side, atv and dirt bike trails in the country.

The Town of Williamson is connected to several trails including Buffalo Mountain, Devil Anse and the Rock House trail systems. All three trails are accessible from Delbarton, Matewan, Gilbert and Man.


“So many people are embracing the trail-riding industry and this event is one of the perfect moments to put the spotlight on a place we love and showcase all the many reasons folks should visit our area,” Wes Wilson said. Wilson is the Tug Valley Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau Director.


“We certainly missed being able to host the event in 2020 but we’re already seeing registration numbers doubling what we witnessed in our inaugural year of 2019.” Wilson said. “It is absolutely awesome to have Dirt Days returning to the streets and trails around Williamson.”


Dirt Days will feature, access to over 350 miles of trail riding, a mud pit, dirt drag racing, a parade and fireworks show on Saturday, July 24 over downtown Williamson.

The public is encouraged to pre-register online at Eventbrite.com. Registration is $50 per person.
