ATHENS, W.Va. – The 30th Athens-Concord Town Social will be held on Sunday, Aug. 14, 2016 on the front lawn of Concord University in Athens, W.Va. The hours for the Town Social are being extended for 2016 with the event running from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. instead of three hours as in past years.

The annual event is being held on Aug. 14 to coincide with the date Concord students move into the residence halls for the Fall 2016 semester. This allows students and their families, along with faculty returning to campus, the opportunity to participate.

The Town Social offers the campus community, residents of Athens and guests from across the area an afternoon to socialize, enjoy entertainment and visit vendor displays and craft booths. This year, in addition to organizational and craft vendors, food vendors are also being invited to set up, free of charge, at the event.

To reserve a vendor space, contact Erin Conner at or 304-384-5130. Reservations may also be made online at: The deadline for reservations is Friday, Aug. 5, 2016.
