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!

June 16th Crawl Happenings

Let’s kick off summer with Towns Best Ice Cream tasting and many other summer fun activities happening at the TR Town & Art Crawl this month. The competition between restaurants and individuals will take place at the Gazebo in downtown Travelers Rest on June 16, 2017 between 6pm and 8pm. Tasting spoons are $2 and all the proceeds raise from this tasting will go back into the community through the services of the North Greenville Food Crisis Ministry.
Along with the Towns Best Ice Cream tasting, the upcoming June crawl will also feature the Travelers Rest Fire and Police Departments. In the heart of downtown Main Street, kids will have the opportunity to touch and look at the fire and rescue engine as well as the police Humvee. Activities along the crawl route also include visiting with local artists, traveling through the sidewalk chalk exhibit, and music at The Grove and outside Sidewall Pizza Company. Visitors can pick up a Crawl Card at many of the local businesses which will give you a map and access to special deals and promotions happening during the crawl event. The Friday evening happenings begin at 5pm and continue till 9pm.

Need a ride or quick way to get from one end of the crawl to the other, hail a rickshaw! Call 864-373-1222 to snag a ride.
