TR Town & Art Crawl Logo

The TR Town & Art Crawl is a grassroots event series highlighting the southern charm of Travelers Rest and bringing together our local business and arts community.This six-event series begins in May and runs through December and is always on a Friday night. We’ll have local artists along Main Street, live music performed at The Grove at Upcountry and a Kids Crawl area with art activities and games just for them. You guys, there will even be bicycle rickshaws available from Reedy Rivers.

Thought the season, you’ll have an opportunity to vote for in several Town’s Best competitions for restaurants or businesses.  Each event will feature various highlights and themes – like the Pumpkin Chucking Team Competition in September.  See what is going on in the upcoming Crawl!
