“This is this is the third year we’ve done this event. It’s a growing event and we just think it was something different. We had always hoped to attract some of the students from WVU Tech. But you know, it’s for anybody who likes coffee or tea. We’ve got other desserts and regular food vendors and lots of food trucks. We like to showcase local talent and it was just a a great spring event,” said Jill Moorefield, the Director of Beckley Events.
