28th Annual Pickens Azalea FestivalFebruary 26, 2012
Scheduled for: Friday, April 20th, and Saturday, April 21st, 2012
Spring, with its warming days encouraging trees to bud and flowers to grace the landscape, is always a reason to celebrate, and Pickens takes full advantage of the opportunity. When azaleas are blooming in Pickens, South Carolina, our town celebrates! Having fun in a family-oriented atmosphere is exactly what we do during the Azalea Festival, which occurs each year in April.
Hosted by local and area civic-minded organizations, the Azalea Festival resembles a large family reunion for Pickens County residents. It gives people who have been away a great opportunity to return for a visit with old friends. The streets of Pickens fill with artists offering a variety of their work and crafts, local organizations handing out important information on a series of topics, and an assortment of food that will entice even the pickiest of eaters. This is what our spring festival is all about.
The Azalea Festival also calls to people who have never been fortunate enough to actually live in Pickens County, beckoning them to share for a moment the pleasures our local people enjoy each day.
