& Annual Events

With live events limited, Wheeling has rallied together to offer virtual and safe, socially distant in-person events for all comfort levels.

Wheeling is home to a few sporting teams, including the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins ECHL Affiliate the Wheeling Nailers, and the West Virginia Rough Riders Indoor Football League. If Basketball is your game you can can catch the Mountain East College Basketball Tournament every March at WesBanco Arena.

Local professional theater, national acts, comedy, dramatic works, Broadway shows, dance and more can all be found at the various theaters and stages throughout Wheeling at any time of the year.

During the summer and fall, there’s a festival happening in Wheeling almost every weekend! Check our annual festivals and events to make sure you don’t miss out on something you’d love!
