An Event Celebrating the Banjo

Follow the evolution of the banjo from its African origins to its modern counterpart.

Each year, Hagood Mill Historic Site sets aside a month to celebrate the banjo.  From its origins as an African gourd instrument to the multiple and unique styles it has today, the banjo is an instrument to be listened to.  Amazing performers will pick the day away, playing music that will inspire and entertain.  You won’t want to miss this celebration of an instrument that has made an impact in so many areas of the world!

We love Hagood Mill! This is a great place to bring the family for a day of affordable fun! Enjoy live music, food, merchants, + more and I’m sure you will love it as much as we do!

Enjoy Demonstrations from Generations Past

Each third Saturday event offers live demonstrations and education for the entire family to enjoy throughout our historic site. From basket weaving to open hearth cooking, learn how generations before us lived and breathed.

Enjoy a day of fun at our historic Hagood Mill while you shop local merchants, watch demonstrations, and relax on our beautiful 55+ acre site. Enjoy great eats from our local featured foodtrucks or shop our mercantile for one-of-a-kind treasures and gifts!
