WNC Bigfoot Festival 2019

All Things Bigfoot Coming Back To Marion, North Carolina at the 2019 WNC Bigfoot Festival

The WNC Bigfoot Festival is returning to McDowell County on September 14, 2019. The event will be held on the downtown of Marion, North Carolina and is set to showcase fans, researchers and the curious with an impressive lineup of activities. Vendor space for this year’s event is at a premium as spaces sold out almost immediately. Organizers now have a waiting list and are working hard to find room for expansion.

Last year’s festival was one of the largest in the county’s history with an estimated  crowd of around 25,000 or more. Visitors came from all around the country as the event received tremendous exposure from national, print, television and web media.



This year’s event includes an expanded lineup of Bigfoot insiders including Dr. John Stamey, renowned for investigations on South Carolina’s Lizardman legend. Television personality and Bigfoot investigator Cliff Barackman will also appear at the festival. Barrack is best known for his appearances in the Animal Planet’s television show Finding Bigfoot.
