2019 Lancaster County (SC) Ag + Art Tour Calls for Participation

April 30, 2019

The 2019 Lancaster County Ag + Art Tour takes place throughout Lancaster, SC, Saturday, June 22 (10am-4pm) and Sunday, June 23 (1-5pm).

The Lancaster County Ag + Art Tour is a part of the South Carolina Ag + Art Tour, the nation’s largest free, self-guided farm tour featuring local artisans and farmers markets. During this tour visitors will have the opportunity to see first-hand where their food comes from, watch artists in action, purchase something special, and learn more about rural life.

An Artisan for the purpose of this program is defined as an individual that makes hand crafted products without the use of kits, commercial models and whose primary components are not manufactured. Craft artisans will be located at Farm Sites and can sell their products. Examples include but are not limited to: painters, potters, weavers, quilters, acoustic musicians, artisan bakers, value-added producers, etc. There is NO FEE to participate. Bakers and value-added food producers must provide a copy of any applicable permit required to sell your product in South Carolina.

Artisans are encouraged to participate in their home county of residence. Artisans can participate on different weekends but must complete a separate application for each county/weekend. Artisans will be able to provide their site location preferences. Artisans will also be able to share if they have a previous relationship with a particular farm site. The Ag + Art Tour County Planning Teams will make every effort to place artisans at their requested location but this placement cannot be guaranteed. If multiple artisans select the same location, placement will be based on a first-come-first-served basis, with special attention given to the type of artisan to allow for a diversity of activities at each site.

A listing of participating farm sites can be found at (www.agandarttour.com/sites).
