37th Annual Historic Pendleton Spring Jubilee
Saturday, April 5 - Sunday, April 6, 2014
"Like" Us and visit our Spring Jubilee Facebook Page!
HISTORIC PENDLETON SPRING JUBILEE began in 1978 as a means to inaugurate tourism in Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties. It has become so much more – a rite of spring, award-winning event, premier festival of the upstate and a source of pride in the community.
Over 300 artisans vie for the coveted 100 spaces. Local and regional entertainers fill the air with music. Due to the festivalís reputation for consistency and quality, thousands of people pour into historic Pendleton the first weekend in April. As patrons look at unique, one-of-a-kind arts and crafts from around the country, live entertainment fills the air with music and local food vendors tempt you with smells of delicious foods.
Inclement weather does not stop the show. Spring rains and winds may dampen the grounds, but the shoppers come because they know they can purchase one-of-a-kind creations. Many artisans have such a following that the buyers help them set up their booths so they can have first choice of their work.
The Historic Pendleton Spring Jubilee has earned respect through the last 37 years by being twice named the BEST FESTIVAL IN SOUTH CAROLINA IN A COMMUNITY OF LESS THAN 3000, a TOP 100 EVENT by the American Bus Association and multi-winner of the TOP TWENTY EVENTS IN THE SOUTHEAST by the Southeast Tourism Society. Come and be part of an award-winning day in a beautiful historic setting.

"The Spring Jubilee is at the top of my list of favorite shows. As an artist I do many shows. The quality of the show is most important. I only show at "juried shows", so that the people visiting and potential buyers are not disappointed when shopping for a gift or a personal item such as jewelry, pottery, or a painting for a very special place in their home. The Spring Jubilee is at the top of my spring shows list. The artists are all professional people, as well as the staff putting the show together. This show is worth a drive, or even a rainy, windy day. You will not be disappointed when you see the fine arts and crafts that Spring Jubilee has to offer."
