About Us

How We Sprouted...

The Environmental Art and Music Festival is a community vibrancy initiative that celebrates Union County's natural beauty as well as our commitment to environmental sustainability and stewardship.  


The idea sprouted when the Piedmont Physic Garden applied for the 2018 Hughes Investments Elevate Upstate Community Vibrancy Grant Program with Ten At The Top.  PPG was one of five finalists in the competition and received a $3,000 matching grant to start the festival with our community partners.


Thank you to the City of Union and the County of Union for providing the matching funds.  It is exciting to see this small seed of an idea come to fruition!


WhAT TO EXPECT

The Environmental Art and Music Festival will take place in the heart of downtown Union.  Enjoy a variety of art exhibits at USC-Union, the Piedmont Physic Garden, the Union Carnegie Library and along our historic Main Street corridor.  


Our Vendor Village at USC-Union's Patrons Park will include craftsmen, artists, and others whose work focuses on celebrating and sustaining our natural world.


The festival will conclude on Saturday night with a live outdoor concert by Nashville musician and Grammy nominated songwriter, Robert Arthur with Union band QUEST.
