Art, antiques, food, music and equine, Aiken is host to festivals all year-long for every interest and enjoyment. Many of these events are free, or go to support a good cause. Find a reason to celebrate and enjoy the many festivals happening in Aiken.
For a more hands-on artistic experience, stopping in for an afternoon at Bisquecuts and Glazy is an absolute must! Try your hand at pottery painting and glass fusing, or join in on a pottery, canvas or ladies’ night out party. Van Gogh to Go, a local business that offers painting instruction, is another big piece of Aiken’s artistic scene that helps keep our community not only enjoying art, but creating it as well.
