The Skunk Farm, a unique music and camping venue, hosts two yearly events in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains: The SpringSkunk Fest in April, and The Albino Skunk Music Festival in October. Although most attendees and artists refer to both festivals as SkunkFest. Originally a Bluegrass Music Festival, SkunkFest now features a variety of acoustic music such as Americana, Folk, Alternative Country, Roots, and Bluegrass. This year's Albino Skunk Music Festival will take place October 4th – 6th at Glynn and Susan Ziegler's old farm place, north of Greer, South Carolina.
