Richland County’s Ag + Art Tour expands with 20 tour sites, 100+ artisans

May 8, 2024

Richland County will host the annual S.C. Ag + Art Tour, featuring 20 farm- and arts-related tour sites and more than 100 local artisans, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. the weekend of June 8-9.

Now in its 13th year, S.C. Ag + Art Tour celebrates the importance of agriculture to South Carolina, as well as the state’s rich artistic heritage. Richland joins 19 other S.C. counties as part of the nation’s largest free farm and arts tour. This is Richland County’s fifth year participating in the growing statewide agritourism event.

The self-guided tour allows residents to view and experience where their food and fiber products come from, while enjoying the work of local artisans including painters, potters, quilters, writers, musicians, storytellers and bakers.

“Farms are one of the best places to see why we need healthy soil and clean water, because they produce the food, fiber and timber that sustain life,” said Chanda Cooper, conservation education analyst for the Richland Soil and Water Conservation District (RSWCD). “The Ag + Art Tour is a great way to showcase those natural resources to our community, to help people connect with the land, connect with the farmers, and also to connect with the art, history and culture of our county,” Cooper said.

The following 20 sites will participate in the County’s Ag + Art Tour on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9, unless otherwise noted:

  • The Congaree Milling Co.
