Museum of Appalachia Independence Day Anvil Shoot

July 4, 2023

WBY returns to the Museum of Appalachia, one of our area’s greatest Appalachian treasures! Celebrate the holiday with our authentic roots music in a set from 12:10-1:00pm, and mark the occasion with an old- fashioned “anvil shoot”. Every 4th of July, the Museum uses gunpowder to launch a 200-pound anvil hundreds of feet into the air! It’s a tradition that MOA has kept alive for nearly 30-year tradition, striving to keep history alive for a 21st century audience.
Anvil shoots will occur at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.
Other activities at the all-day celebration include a national bell-ringing ceremony, flag procession, southern food, and demonstrations from blacksmiths, beekeepers, dulcimer makers, spinners, weavers, rail splitters, and more.
Family tickets are discounted to $35 for a limited time! Get your tickets today. More info:
