    Description
    For 33 years Pickens has celebrated spring by throwing an arts and entertainment based and family friendly celebration. Each April, the Azaleas bloom, artisans and crafters come out, and the community joins together to celebrate spring in the city of Pickens. Celebrate is exactly what they do! Presented by the Pickens Azalea Festival Committee and hosted by area nonprofit and civic organizations, the Pickens Azalea Festival boasts the largest gathering of crafters, artisans, and entertainers in the county, and quite possibly the Golden Corner

    The Azalea Festival is also somewhat of large family reunion, giving people who have been away too long, the chance to return and to visit with old friends and family. The streets are filled with local artists and crafters, exciting and varied food vendors, and quaint little shops and eateries. Strolling downtown Pickens during the festival is certainly an exciting and fun filled activity. The festival gives those who have never visited and opportunity to experience this great area during one of the best times to explore and experience all Pickens County has to offer

    National, regional, and local musical artists entertain while local artisans and crafters inspire. Foodies will enjoy regional favorites and the kids will laugh as they partake in the childrens ride area and free childrens creation area. Come browse on of the largest cruise-in in the area and enjoy all that Pickens has to offer! For those who are interested in more physical activity, the annual Pickens Womens Association 5k is held annually in conjunction with the Pickens Azalea Festival. History buffs will enjoy self-guided tours through historic Pickens or hop a shuttle or enjoy a short drive to the many historic places in and around Pickens County.

    There is something for everyone to enjoy each spring at the Pickens Azalea Festival!

    Description
    Come experience the time of your life- just listening to the sound of a voice. The Stone Soup Storytelling Festival is built upon the various versions of the old story of Stone Soup. The moral of the story is that by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved. Our Stone Soup storytellers come from all around the nation. They represent a variety of cultures and storytelling genres. The 2017 Stone Soup Storytelling headliners and featured tellers are: Noa Baum, Donna Washington, Rona Levanthal, Mike Lockett, Ingrid Nixon and Marji Pulliam. The Stone Soup Storytelling Festival begins on Friday by sharing our storytellers with the local schools. The public storytelling sessions start at noon on Friday and continue through Sunday. There will be fables, fairy tales, historical stories, liars and personal tales. Performers run the gamut from nationally acclaimed tellers to novice tellers and amateurs competing for their chance to shine.

We continue through Sunday with the service at First Presbyterian Church of Woodruff. There will be fables, fairy tales, Jack tales, historical stories, liars, ghost stories and personal tales. Performers run the gamut from nationally acclaimed tellers to New Voices, novice tellers and amateurs competing for their chance to shine. One of our top priorities is to try to preserve the intimate, small town feeling and atmosphere of traditional storytelling. The storytelling that occurred on the front porch on a Sunday afternoon, during your trip to town on a Saturday morning or under the shade tree at the backyard picnic. A welcome place for everyone to come.
    A place to come and to experience "time well spent"- just listening to the sound of a voice and making new friends.

We will address these topics and more at this workshop.

    Local Resources: Learn about resources that can help you determine what accommodations may be best and how to implement them.
