Heritage Days Festival is held the third full weekend in October and is the highlight of the year in Talking Rock. Vendors from around the state join with shop owners for a 2-day festival, that includes food, fun and music. Admission and parking are FREE!
The business section of Talking Rock is ordinarily a rather quiet place to browse the shops and relax. However, on the 3rd weekend in October during the Annual Heritage Days Festival, our little town will be filled with booths featuring a wide variety of arts, crafts and antiques. There will be activities for the young and young-at-heart, great music and delicious food.
You can also take the kids to the free bounce houses or relax in the park along the banks of Talking Rock Creek.
NEW in 2022, a Duck Race with proceeds to benefit Pickens Animal Rescue and The Joy House.
