The Pendleton Fall Harvest Festival will be held on October 24, 2015 from 10 am to 5 pm on the historic Village Green in Pendleton, South Carolina.  This fun family festival offers great entertainment and old fashioned children's games as well as 100 vendors with crafts, art, wares, and food.  It is a relaxing atmosphere so plan to come spend the day and while you are in town please visit our wonderful shops and restaurants.

Did I mention that our town will be filled with all kinds of unique Scarecrows that are fun and creative.  These scarecrows will be competing in the Annual Scarecrow Contest and it is a sight to see, for sure.  These are not your everyday Scarecrows.  These are fascinating, entertaining, and clever creatures that have been created by local businesses, individuals, groups, churches or organizations.  A lot of hard work and talent goes into making each one with its own personality.  You will not want to miss this great treat!
