Pendleton’s Thirteenth Annual Fall Harvest Festival will be held on the Village Green in Pendleton on Saturday, October 1st. The festival will run from 10AM to 5PM, and will feature quality crafts, entertainment, food vendors, old-fashioned children’s games and fine family fun. Crowd-pleasing banjo player, Charles Wood, will be performing again this year, along with the Pendleton Swingers, a fabulous square-dance group who will make you want to dance! Upstate Dance and Baton and Zander Morris will feature local talent, and, always foot-tapping fun, Breazeale's Grocery Bluegrass will be with us this year! Once again, Pendleton's own D.J. Patrick Brock will be on hand throughout the day.
The ever-popular Split Creek Farm will bring a selection of award-winning goat cheese; Hevy Mann will have his fresh lemonade & melt-in-your-mouth funnel cakes; and there will be a variety of festival fare. Our craft vendors will bring beautiful, handmade jewelry, exquisite hand-smocked dresses for "little princesses," and handmade soaps and lotions sure to delight. Over 60 vendors will fill the historic Village Green for this fun event.
The fifth ever “Bubba-Bake-Off” will also be held, featuring local fellas showing off their most(ly) creative baking skills! If last year’s entries are any indication, this is an event that would make Betty Crocker proud and that will tickle you good! Cakes will be auctioned by one of our local "personalities," with proceeds going to the Pendleton Leadership Foundation., an organization made up of Leadership Pendleton alumni whose purpose is to make a positive impact on our community. Call Cathy or Lenora at The Palmetto Bank to enter: 864-646-2100.
