A Note on the 2022 Greer Arts & Eats Festival

“Last year was our first Greer Arts & Eats festival and we had a lot of success. We were blown away with the attendance and how everyone spread out and had a great time. This year, we’ve secured more than double the artisan and food vendors, an even better music line and lots more of the community involved, so it’s set to be a great 2 days. A special thank you to all of our sponsors this year, we couldn’t do this event without the community and business support!”
