The YMCA of Southern West Virginia is getting revved up for the 11th annual Friends of Coal Auto Fair.

Every summer the YMCA Sports Complex hosts one of West Virginia's premier car shows. Jake Owen and Kellie Pickler will perform at the concert.

There's also carnival rides & games. You can join in on the fun July 18th through July 20th in Beckley.


"We feel like it's going to be something people really take in and really remember and make a good impression. If we can get people to come out and really support what we're doing here this year it will set the tone for future years at the Friends of Coal Auto Fair," said Jay Rist, CEO of the YMCA of Southern West Virginia.

Tickets can still be purchased online. Last year's Auto Fair raised more than $100,000 for the YMCA's kids summer camps and programs.
