Ag+Art Tour of Newberry County has been set for June 1 and 2. The farms have been selected, as have the ancillary sites. Currently, sign-ups are being held for local artists. If you are, or know, a local artist who may be interested, have them contact the Chamber for additional information. The Chamber looks forward to bringing this event to the area again so that we can celebrate our agricultural heritage and promote local artists.
As in the past, we will hold the popular Farm to Table Dinner to kick off the weekend. Instead of the Thursday just prior, we will hold the Dinner on May 23, so two Thursdays prior to the weekend of the Tour. Tickets to this dinner are limited, so contact us soon to reserve your spot.
Also starting on June 1 is the summer Grow Newberry Farmers Market. This program will be held in Memorial Park in downtown Newberry, and spaces will be available for gardeners of produce and plants, bakers, select craftsman, and a few non-profits. Contact us if you are interested in being a vendor or a sponsor of this popular event.
