S.C. Farmers Market announces bluegrass festival
It's not the picking you normally associate with farming or farmers. This kind is much more festive.
In fact, it's a festival.
The South Carolina State Farmers Market
announced a partnership with West Columbia institution Bill’s Music Shop & Pickin’ Parlor to create a family-friendly bluegrass festival at the market.
The inaugural festival will be held this Saturday, Oct. 30, from noon to 5 p.m. The announced featured performers are to include the following bands:
- Willie Wells & The Blue Ridge Mountain Grass
- Savannah River Bluegrass
- Pinehill Ramblers;
- Blue Faith.
Expect food trucks and, owing to its family-friendly nature, a bounce house will be on site for children. And, owing to it being fairly informal being at the farmer's market, guests should bring chairs. No coolers are allowed.
Admission is $10 for those 12 and older, and $5 for those under 12. The South Carolina State Farmers Market is located at 3483 Charleston Highway in West Columbia.
