Lexington County joins 2020 Ag + Art Tour

On June 13-14, 2020, Lexington County will join 10 other counties in South Carolina for the South Carolina Ag + Art Tour.

This is a free tour for visitors and residents to tour farms and farmers markets featuring local artisans at every stop. During the tour, visitors get to see firsthand where food comes from, watch artists an action and purchase their works, maybe dance to a few melodies of Bluegrass and folk songs and basically learn more about rural life in South Carolina.

The Capital City/Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism office is supporting the Ag + Arts tour in Lexington County.  And, a committee has been formed to help recruit farms and artisans for the weekend event. The committee members are Julie Colson, Jayne Baker, Kari Pepper McKeone, Jennifer Williams and Shannon Mercer (see attached photo).

“Our regional tourism office is excited to help with the Lexington County Ag + Arts event. We know that visitors are drawn to a unique experience and  agri-tourism is a growing market in the tourism industry,” said Miriam Atria, President/CEO of Capital City/Lake Murray Country.
