LOGAN — The planning committee for Appalachian Heritage Days have announced that, based on the recommendation of the Logan County Health Department, they have decided to postpone the event until spring of 2022 due to high rates of community transmission of COVID in Logan County and throughout the state.

The events, set for — originally scheduled for Friday-Saturday, Sept. 10-11, in Logan, included the Taste of the Coalfields, concert at the Coalfield Jamboree, exhibits and workshops scheduled for Sept. 11 at Chief Logan Conference Center, Faces of Blair photography exhibit, the Redneck Run and tours of the Don Chafin House.
