Preston County Buckwheat Festival

For the last 17 years, the Preston County Buckwheat Festival has hosted a hometown favorite in the small world of Irish Road Bowling. It features good pavement and tightly banked turns for the first 1/3 of the course, then straightens out through the residential or middle portion of the course. At the intersection of Pleasantdale and Greens Run Road, bowlers have one of the best lofting opportunities of any course. The winning team takes home 4 tickets for a buckwheat dinner. Come out early and tailgate with some of the local teams before the event begins.

Registration begins at 12:00. Bowling begins at 1:00
