There’s A Bigfoot Festival Happening In Marion North Carolina And You’ll Want To Go

Long before there was even a name given to the large, bi-pedal creature now known as Bigfoot, there were sightings and reports of Sasquatch. Witnesses report the creature as being anywhere from six to nine feet in height and covered in black, dark brown or even reddish hair. Just last summer, the Marion-based Facebook group called Bigfoot 911 reported a sighting – and the news went viral. It seems everyone wants to see the legendary creature with their own two eyes.

Later this year the North Carolina town of Marion is hosting their first ever Bigfoot Festival, and if all goes well, the guest of honor will actually show up.
If anyone can coax him out, it will be the town of Marion. They really (we mean REALLY) know how to throw a great festival.
For instance, the first Saturday of every June, Marion is home to the Liver Mush Festival — which features pig races and a Liver Mush eating contest, among other fun events.
Next month, on Saturday, April 21st, Marion will host their annual Donut Festival. The sweet treats just may coax Sasquatch out of hiding! But if they don’t, then their first ever Bigfoot Festival, scheduled for September 8, 2018 in downtown Marion, may be the ticket. Afterall, it’s just plain rude for a guest of honor to not show up for his own party, right?
The details of the festival events haven’t been released yet. But perhaps the fun day will include a faux Bigfoot footprint casting competition, or even a costume contest.
We can bet there were be an abundance of glow sticks on hand – since Bigfoot is reportedly attracted to them.
Expect a lot of vendors to be there, too, selling everything from food to Bigfoot-related keepsakes.
Even if the guest of honor is a no-show, you’ll at least get to go home with a Bigfoot tee to remember the occasion — until next year!

Save the Date! September 8, 2018. The Bigfoot Festival will take place in Marion, North Carolina. To keep up with Bigfoot throughout the Tar Heel State, you can follow the Facebook page North Carolina Bigfoot, and if you’re into the investigation side of things, you can ask to join the Marion-based Bigfoot investigation group on Facebook.

Just out of curiosity, what kinds of events do you think should be included at the upcoming Bigfoot Fest?
