Friends of Charity Auto Fair

The Friends of Charity Auto Fair, formerly the Friends of Coal Auto Fair, is one of the state's premier car show and festivals.  Held on the spacious grounds of the Raleigh County Memorial Airport in Beckley, West Virginia, the show features hundreds of rods, customs, classics, muscle cars, motorcycles, tuners, and trucks from all years. Additionally you will find arts and crafts vendors, local business representatives, and food vendors. The event is concluded with a Saturday Night Concert featuring musical performances by well-known performers and up & coming future stars.

Since the event's inception, the goal for the Auto Fair has been to help raise funds for local charitable organizations to boost the economy and shed light on what these organizations do to make our area a better place to live, work and play. Thanks to our sponsors, participants and patrons, the show continues to be successful in accomplishing these objectives.

Proceeds from the 2022 Friends of Charity Auto Fair support Hospice of Southern West Virginia and Brian's Safehouse.

Rodney Atkins

Rodney Atkins' storied career has reached such heights as being named the Top New Male Vocalist at the 2006 ACM awards and seeing his single “Watching You” become the Number One Song of the Decade, according to Country Aircheck, it’s been more than seven years since Take a Back Road, his last record of new material. But Atkins knew that this time, he wanted to bring his songs further than he had ever gone before. 

The results, he believes, are the most daring collection of his career, touching on emotions and sounds which continue to expand his range—from the twangy celebration of the album’s title track (featuring the roof-raising vocals of The Fisk Jubilee Singers) to the slow-burn cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.” And with six Number One singles, eight Top Five singles, and over 13 million units sold, Atkins sees that his track record validates his approach.
