On Friday, July 30th and Saturday the 31st, make plans for two days of music and featuring the Colorful Chameleon Food Truck, Na Na’s Ice Cream, activity vendors, crafts, camping, and good ‘ol summertime fun! To assist with restoration efforts, Sweet Springs Resort Park Foundation has teamed up with Chad Nickell & The Loose Change to present their 2nd Annual Fling at the Springs Music Festival! This event is held on the grounds of the Old Sweet Springs Resort in Sweet Springs, WV (Monroe County) and is the resort’s first major fundraiser since 2019!

The event kicks off on Friday the 30th at 4pm. Guitarist/vocalist Shawn Benfield takes the stage from 5:30-6:30p; followed by Nathan Seldomridge, from 6:40-7:40p. Elements of Us then plays from 7:50-8:50p. 4ever Classic closes out the night with classic and southern rock from 9-11p.

Saturday evening’s headliner is Chad Nickell & The Loose Change and they perform from 8:30-11p. Formed in May 2015, this band delivers honest, heartfelt, original music. They say their journey has no boundaries. “Sometimes it’s Blues, others it’s Alt-Country/Americana with a dabble of Soul. We simply play what we feel.” And for this event, they promise to BRING IT!

Bring the kids as this is a family-friendly event!  There will be plentiful activities including cornhole, badminton, softball, baseball, and oversized checkers! Some of the activity vendors include Olive and Rose Hempworks, Mermazing Dyes, WVAstronomy, Sweet Home Creations, Jane & Mae Photography, and more!

Attendees are welcome to bring coolers but no glass. Adult beverages must be concealed in an opaque container/cup. If you are interested in camping out for this festival, the cost is $25 per vehicle for both nights. FYI: there are no hookups available for campers.

The Sweet Springs Historic District is one of the most significant historic sites in North America (c 1740). The property was used by the Trans Alleghany Indians (long before settlers) who used the area for medicinal and birthing purposes because of the pure drinking water (still some of the purest in the world) and the warm water pool (water stays 73 degrees year-round).

 

After William Lewis got title to the land, the first of 3 hotels were built. The current one, designed by Thomas Jefferson, opened in 1833 and the property consists of a large hotel, several houses, the oldest frame built house and oldest jail west of the Alleghany Mountains, and the foundation to the homestead of Anne Royall – the first noted woman journalist, editor, writer and friend to John Quincy Adams. Anne is buried in the Congressional Cemetery in Washington DC. Between 1795 & 1807, the District Court House was here on the property with court being held in the jailhouse.

Sweet Springs Resort is located at 19540 Sweet Springs Valley Road, Sweet Springs, WV 24941. It’s about a 25-minute drive from White Sulphur Springs. Sweet Springs Resort Park Foundation, Inc is dedicated to the restoration and revitalization of the historic Sweet Springs Resort property. All proceeds from this event go towards the Sweet Springs Resort Park for funding the restoration of the resort. For more information on this event, find this event on facebook @flingatthesprings. See you there!
