The Cheat River Festival, known affectionately as Cheat Fest, is held every year in Albright, West Virginia on the first weekend in May. Featuring kayaking, rafting, camping, bands, vendors, games, food and festivities, Cheat Fest has something to offer everyone who loves the outdoors. The Friends of the Cheat (FOC), the group responsible for the Cheat River Festival each year, hosts this extravaganza to raise money to protect their most precious of natural resources, that is the Cheat River.
