Real Estate Agent with Silver Star Real Estate LLC 67090

The 2010 Issaqueena Festival will be held on Saturday, May 15 from 9:30 am - 4 pm in downtown Six Mile in Pickens County. Main Street will be closed from Liberty Highway to Six Mile Baptist church during the festival. Free entertainment for both adults and children is provided with plenty of room to sit down and enjoy the entertainment under tents along Main Street. Both food and arts and crafts vendors line Main Street during the festival. There is also going to be a cruise in also!

The area known as Six Mile once belonged to the Cherokee Nation. A popular legend says that Six Mile was named by the Indian maiden, Issaqueena, who rode her horse on a journey of ninety-six miles to warn an English trader named Francis Allen of a coming Cherokee attack on his fort. Issaqueena numbered the creeks she crossed until she reached the fort in the area she labeled Ninety Six. There is still a town named Ninety Six, and many other “number names” on the path to it, these include Mile Creek, Six Mile, Twelve Mile River, and Six and Twenty Creek. The town festival was named in her honor.

For additional information or vendor forms please contact Six Mile Town Hall at 868-2653 or issaqeenafestival@bellsouth.net. Vendor forms are also available at www.sixmilesc.org

Mark, Sounds great! Enjoy and take lots of business cards! By the way, those Cherokees ended up very near here in Tahlequah, OK. by way of the Trail of Tears, amazing history.

Charles this is a great time of the year for festivals in Upstate South Carolina and sometimes it is hard to pick between several great events occuring on the same day!
