The 2019 MAD Festival will take place on the beautiful campus of West Liberty University on Friday, April 12, 2019. It will be a day filled with cutting-edge art and design, workshops and sessions, professional artists and producers, and an award ceremony for students. Hundreds of students from dozens of high schools in WV, PA, and OH will participate again this year. Because of the high level of interest in MAD Fest, we will be limiting registration this year to 25 students per high school. Be sure to register your students early. See “Important Dates” below.
