Mt Rogers Fire Hall, 511 Firehouse Rd., Whitetop, VA

Date: 05/19/2019 - 05/19/2019
Starts: 10 am
Ends: 5 pm

A ramp is a wild onion that grows in the mountains around Mt. Rogers and other areas of the Appalachian Mountains. It is known for its strong, pungent flavor and some describe it as "very hot".

At the Ramp Festival, the ramp eating contest is the highlight of the day. The winner gains respect by eating ramps at record speeds (contest at 4 pm). Once you have tried a ramp you will never forget the experience. Come out and try a ramp at the Whitetop Mountain Ramp Festival! Old Time Mountain & Bluegrass Music starting at 11.

Bring a Lawn Chair and enjoy the view of the mountains.

The Mt. Rogers Fire Hall is located at 511 Firehouse Rd. Whitetop, VA  24292
