The Town of Huntsville is the site of several events and festivals each year. Make plans to join us for our next one for a down-home good time in the heart of Appalachia.
First Saturday in March
Each March, Brimstone officially bids farewell to winter and welcomes spring with Winterfest, a group ride that attracts riders from all over the country. The event begins at 9 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month with free guided rides, and ends with a free dinner served by the Brimstone staff at the Nathaniel Byrge Gathering Place at the Brimstone Campground.
2017 date: March 4

Last Saturday in September
Scott High School faculty and students present this one-of-a-kind festival each September. The Museum of Scott County, Scott High School’s student-built and student-operated museum, hosts the festival on the SHS campus. The festival takes guests on a step back in time to the pioneer days of Scott County and southern Appalachia, with a variety of crafts demonstrations — from basket-weaving to rifle-making — Civil War reenactments, food and much more.
2017 date: Sept. 30
