The 22nd annual Marshall County Back-to-School Fun Fair will be held on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, in the Moundsville Center at the former West Virginia State Penitentiary from 9:00 am until noon.
The “Fun Fair” is open to any Marshall County Schools student, Pre-K through 12th grade, who is accompanied by an adult. Each child will receive a free backpack filled with school supplies such as pencils, pens, notebooks and more.
Other free services will be offered during the “Fun Fair.” The Marshall County Health Department will provide check-ups and hairstylists will be giving haircuts. Nearly 50 different agencies will be on hand to assist students and parents. Milk and doughnuts will be served for breakfast.
Marshall County Schools employee Susie Baker started the “Fun Fair” in 2000 and since then has become a popular way for Marshall County students to celebrate their return to school. Last year more than 1,600 families took part in the event. There are no income guidelines to participate in the “Fun Fair.”
