About the Ag + Art Tour
The Catawba Regional Ag + Art Tour is a free, self-guided tour of farms and artisans. During this weekend-long event visitors will have the opportunity to see first-hand where their food comes from, watch artists in action and purchase their works, dance to the melodies of bluegrass and folksongs, and learn more about rural life.
Founded in York County in 2012, the tour expanded into Lancaster County in 2013. Chester and Fairfield counties began participating in 2014. This year we are excited to welcome Union County. The tour is coordinated by a leadership team and county-level planning teams. The Tour is the largest free farm tour in the nation with over 16,000 visitors participating since 2012.
