1. What sets Tamarack apart from other cultural centers?

Tamarack is the nation’s first statewide collection of hand-made crafts, arts and cuisine. Visitors will discover 59,000 square feet of juried crafts, working art studios for resident artisans, a 178-seat theater, fine art gallery and A Taste of West Virginia food court all under one roof, with an additional 22,500 square feet of meeting or special occasion space in the Tamarack Conference Center.
The Tamarack Foundation furthers the accomplishments of Tamarack by preserving and sharing West Virginia's cultural traditions, training and educating artisans, and building an economic base for the future.

3. Why was Tamarack created?

Tamarack is the collective vision of artisans, agriculturists, businessmen, community members and public officials from every county. It was created to boost the state’s economy by fostering a market-driven approach to selling indigenous products. As a world-class facility, Tamarack is destined to become a major tourist attraction, expand job opportunities and draw more than 500,000 visitors a year. The Tamarack facility is the focal point of the Tamarack distribution system, which markets West Virginia-made products throughout the state.
