Railroad Day - Saturday
The Mon Valley Model Railroad Club will be bringing its large 24-foot mobile layout. The Mon Valley Club had its layout at Railroad Reunion Day last year and it was a big hit. The Northern Virginia Ntrak Railroad Club is expected to come back again with its mobile layout, which is also 24 feet in length, and the Clarksburg Area Model Railroad Club will bring three layouts! The model railroad exhibits will be open from noon to 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, and from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. on Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend. The Rowlesburg Area Historical Society will sponsor rides to the top of Cannon Hill so that visitors can get a bird's eye view of the town and the railroad that built it.
Annual OX Roast: Labor Day

This is Rowlesburg's modern day Claim to Fame and visitors come from all corners of the USA to partake in a gastronomic treat found only in the Cheat River Valley.
The Park crew lights the barbecue pit fire on Sunday night so that the ox roasts slowly to a moist, melt-in-your mouth tenderness. The fire is tended all night to make sure your portion is of the high quality you expect. (I've heard rumors that the meat is really roast beef, not ox)
In addition to great food, there will be a carnival, music and other entertainment, plus a finale of fireworks from Cannon Hill over the river.
