Pickin’ On the Square at the Earl Scruggs Center

Pickers, come jam informally around the square or sign up for a performance slot!  All playing levels welcome. Not a picker?  Come and bring your family and friends and sit back and enjoy as we celebrate the tradition of bluegrass music.  Take part in a corn hole tournament, face painting, kids crafts, homemade ice cream, and more!
