Real Life in the Real South

Upcoming Backroads Events

With the historic winter ice event now behind us and the recent spring teasing weather that beckons for us all to get out and ramble about the countryside, here are a handful of upcoming Backroads festivals and spring affairs that I’ve gathered from across the CSRA.  They include vendors, crafts, food and more!

While these spring events are attended largely by the locals, I highly recommend you consider stretching your wings, venture out and enjoy the unique Southern hospitality, culture and charm that can only be experienced in our region’s smaller towns and rural crossroads. The local organizers will greatly appreciate your attendance and support as proceeds from these events largely support the hosting communities.
