Calling all Grayson County artists, craftspeople, woodworkers and farmers!

Applications from new artists and farmers to participate in this year’s 2024 Ag & Art Adventure are due March 6th, 2024.

Returning artists and farms from 2023’s Adventure, please renew your participation by filling out the above “returning participant form” by March 6th.

If you have any questions about participating, please contact us at [email protected] or 276-773-8002.

This year’s adventure will feature some exciting new changes!

Studio and Farm Tours will be held Saturday ONLY from 10 AM to 4 PM, with artists stationed throughout the county at our participating farms and studios.

We will offer two curated bus tours of the route guided by members of the Grayson County Historical Society on a ticketed basis.

In an effort to include performing arts, this year’s tour will add a free gospel music concert and traditional music jam at the Historic 1908 Courthouse in Independence on Sunday, September 8 beginning at 1:00 p.m. Interested artists and farmers will be invited to set up on the grounds of the Courthouse during the concert as well. Admission to all exhibits is free, but art and farm products may be purchased. There will be no farm tours on Sunday.

Our route will carry you through stops from the rolling pastures of Baywood all the way to the rugged peaks of Western Grayson in a unique twist on a traditional art crawl.

Celebrate the creativity of our local artisans and the quality of our farms at your own pace. Watch demonstrations, buy some art, pet a cow, pick up some produce—all while enjoying a scenic mountain drive along the New River.

Stay tuned for more updates about this year’s 2024 Ag & Art Adventure!
