Lansing offers year-round festivals and regular public gatherings open to families, traditional music lovers and everyone else looking for a bit of authentic mountain culture, whether you're in town for a weekend, for a month or a for whole season. Festivals include our annual Rubber Ducky Race on the New River and the annual five-week Halloween Haunted School event. Weekend barbecues sponsored by the Lansing Fire Department throughout the year are a must for everyone's tastebuds! Look for music in the park on summer evenings. 2016 brings the First Annual Blues Festival to Lansing.
