Nested in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there is a rich history of Appalachian life in the community of Pickens. To celebrate that past and present culture, the Pickens Revitalization Association has put together a great event….the Gathering on Appalachian Life!


On Saturday, March 4th, head over to the Pickens Community Center for a full day of learning and fun. There will be numerous topics discussed regarding life in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Learn about how the residents of the past lived, played, and worked in Pickens and the surrounding area. Workshops will be held that cover cooking, dancing, fiber arts, genealogy, singing, history, and so much more! The day is all about celebrating the great Pickens way of life! Whether you want to attend the whole day or just a half day, this is a wonderful community event that should not be missed!
